Thepresent invention‘ relates to new and use
ful improvements in piano benches and has for
its primary object-to provide, in a manner as
hereinafter set forth, a device of this-character
Cl embodying a novel construction, combination
and arrangement of parts through the medium
of which a plurality of vertical adjustments may
be expeditiously made.
Other .objects of the invention are to provide
10 an adjustable piano bench of the aforementioned
character which will be comparatively simple in
construction, strong, durable, highly e?icient and
reliable in use, compact, light in weight, attrac~
tive in appearance and which may be manufac
15 tured at low cost.
‘ All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages will become apparent from a
study of the following speci?cation, taken in con
nection with the accompanying drawings where
in like characters of reference designate corre
'Ifhesupporting structure ‘I vincludes legs 2‘ be
tween'which ‘a plurality of braces'3 extend.
The reference numeral 5 designates blocks of
suitable material which are hingedly mounted on
the upper end portions of the legs 2, as at 6. 5
As illustrated to advantage inFig. 7, of the draw
ings, the blocks 5 are adapted to be swung up
’ Wardly on’ the upper ends of the legs 2 in a man
ner to constitute vertical extensions on said legs.
The blocks on the front and rear legs 2 are con- 10
nected by rods 1 for operation in unison.
Removably mounted on the supporting struc
ture I is a. substantially rectangular seat which
is designated generally by the reference numeral
8. The seat 8, it will be observed, comprises a 15
frame 9, a top [0 and an apron ll. Mounted for
sliding movement beneath the longitudinal mem
bers of the frame 9 are substantially ‘U-shaped
members l2. The leg portions of the substan
tially U-'-shaped slidable members l2 have formed 20
sponding parts throughout the several views, and ‘ therein slots l3 which accommodate headed ele- I
wherein:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of an embodiment
of the invention.
Figure 2 is a front elevation thereof.
Figure 3 is a vertical, longitudinal sectional
View, taken substantially on the line 3--3 of Fig.
1, the lower portions of the legs being broken
away.
Figure 4 is a view in end elevation of the inven
tion with the seat omitted.
Figure 5 is a view in front elevation thereof.
Figure 6 is a vertical sectional view through an
the members I2 being‘in ‘inoperative position. '0
The next adjustment is made by sliding the
upper portion of the device, taken substantially
members I2 outwardly from the position shown
in Fig. 8 of the drawings to that illustrated in
Fig. 9, thus permitting the end portions of said
on the line 6—6 of Fig. 5.

ments I4 for mounting said members. [2 beneath
the frame 9.
The construction and. arrangement is such that
four vertical adjustments of the removable seat 25
8 may be made. The lowest adjustment is shown
to advantage in Fig. 3 of the drawings wherein
the frame 9 of the seat 8 is resting directly on
the upper ends of the legs 2, the blocks 9 and
Figure 8 is a bottom plan view of the remov- _
able seat.
Figure 9 is a bottom plan view of a corner por
tion of the removable seat, showing the slidably
mounted adjusting members in operative posi

tion.

‘
' Figure 10 is a vertical sectional view through
an end portion of the seat, taken substantially on
the line Ill—l0 of Fig. 9.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it
50
will be seen that the embodiment of the invention
which has been illustrated comprises what may
be referred to as a supporting unit or structure
of suitable material, preferably wood, which is
55 designated generally by the reference numeral I.
2. Of course, to make these adjustments the
seat 8 is removed from thesupporting structure
I. The next adjustment of the seat 8 is accom
plished by retracting the members I2 and swing
ing the blocks 5 upwardly to operative position 40
> on the upper ends of the legs 2, as shown in Fig.
7 of the drawings. The seat 8, when replaced,
rests on the blocks 5. Then, the last and high
est adjustment is. made ,by sliding the members
I 2 outwardly for engagement on the blocks 5.
It is believed that the many advantages of an
adjustable piano bench constructed in accord
ance with the present invention will be readily
understood and although a preferred embodiment
of the device is as illustrated and described, it 50
is to be understood that changes in the details
of construction and in the combination and ar
rangement of parts may be resorted to which
will fall within the scope of the invention as
claimed.

What is claimed is:—
1. A piano bench comprising a plurality of legs,
a seat removably mounted on said legs, and mem
bers slidably mounted on the seat and engageable
with the upper ends of the legs for supporting
said seat in elevated position thereon.
2. A piano bench comprising, in combination,
a plurality of legs, a removable seat adapted to
be mounted on said legs, blocks hingedly mounted
10 on the legs and engageable with the upper ends
4. A piano bench of the class described com
prising a supporting structure including a plu
rality of legs, braces extending between said
legs, a seat adapted to be removably mounted on
the legs, said seat including a frame, a top on
said frame and an apron depending from the
frame, blocks hingedly mounted on the upper
portions of the legs and engageable on the upper
ends thereof for supporting the seat in elevated
position thereon, rods connecting certain of the
blocks for operation in unison, substantially U
shaped members slidably mounted beneath the
and engageable selectively with the blocks
able with the blocks for supporting the seat inv ,_ frame
‘
thereof for elevating the seat, and members
slidably mounted beneath said seat and engage
15
" ~ or with the legs for supporting the seat in ele
elevated position on said blocks.
3. A piano bench comprising a plurality of ‘ vated position thereon, the leg portions of said
legs, a seat adapted to be removably mounted on.
said legs, said seat including a frame, a top
mounted on said frame and an apron depending
from the frame, and a pair of substantially U
shaped members slidably mounted beneath the '
frame and engageable on the upper, ends of the
legs for supporting the seat in elevated position
thereon.»
