Referring to the drawings by reference numer als it will be seen that the combination box spring and mattress comprises preferably two or more, in the illustrated form, three identically con structed sections each indicated generally by the l0. _ - Each section II] includes a spring structure in dicated generally by the reference numeral II and a mattress l2. ' The mattress l2 may be secured to the spring II in any suitable manner as by stitching repre sented at l2’ to retain these two members against .

Such fastening devices are herein illustrated and indicated generally by the reference numeral 30. Preferably, the mattress portion l2 of each section is equipped at-each of two opposite sides thereof for such a fastener 30 so that the sections may be interchanged and - relatively arranged as found desirable. } From the above it will be apparent that the 40 sections I0 may be arranged as shown in Figure 1 and through the slide fasteners 30 detachably connected together in alignment and in this man ner be placed within or supported by the frame of a bed or similar article of furniture. It will 45 be further noted that the clearance spaces 25 brace plates I8 secured to the edges of the pieces may have the marginal edge portions of the sheet l4, l6 and I1, as best shown in Figures 4 and 5. or other bed clothing tucked therein.
