The drawings and speci?cation present a detailed dis
closure of the preferred embodiments of the invention,
_ The back panels are semi-pointed oval shape and each
have a top curved side edge 27 and 24 respectively and
a bottom curved side edge 26 and 23 respectively. The
top and bottom designations are used with reference to
the position of the back panels on the chair, and they
are inverted in position as shown in FIGURE 1 inas
much as the pattern is spread out or shown as opened
up._ The back panels also have straight base edges 28
and 25 and the panels normally are cut by the base edges
extending parallel to the straight of the goods.
_ The back panels are attached to the body panel 12
by securing their top edges 27 and 24 to the top edge
21 of the body panel, and the attaching seam is shown
at 29 in FIGURE 3. The pointed ends of the back
panels 13 and 14 are substantially at the pointed ends
of the sections 18 and 19 of the body panel, although
the back panels 13 and 14 are made so that their com
bined length is slightly longer than the length of the
sections of the body panel and their bottom edges 26
and 23 will be slightly below the seams 30 when the
panels are joined.
The back panels are provided with releasable fasteners
such as snaps 31, FIGURE 3, for releasably connecting
thebase edges 28 and 25 across the back of the chair.
For aiding in holding the body panel into the con
cavity of the chair, tie cords 32 may be sewed to the
backside of the body panel 12, as i‘lustrated in FIGURE
1,‘ and these tie cords will be drawn between the ?bers
'of the woven chair to be tied to the ?bers or to a frame
piece 43 in the manner illustrated in FIGURE 5.
The bottom panels 15 and 16 are each pointed semi
oval shaped and have curved front side edges 33 and 35
respectively which are connected to the bottom edge 21
of the body panel, as shown by the seam 39 in FIGURE
4. The bottom panels have back curved side edges 34
and 36 which are attached to the bottom edges 26 and
23 respectively of the back panel, as shown by the seams

Thus it will be seen that I have provided a chair and
cover combination which meets the objectives and ad
vantages hereinabove set forth. The cover is well adapted
to manufacturing at a relatively low cost and transforms
an inexpensive basket chair to a colorful attractive chair
pearing.
and it is to be understood that the invention is not
limited to the speci?c forms disclosed, but covers all
modi?cations, changes and alternative constructions and
methods falling within the scope of the principles taught
by the invention.
I claim as my invention:
1. A unitary removable cover for a basket chair com
prising a body panel having a pair of adjacent pointed
oval shaped sections with their outer side edges provid
ing upper and lower edges of the panel and being uni'ed
along the inner side edges of the sections, said body
panel providing a liner for the upper side of a basket
type chair and protectively extending over the peripheral
edge thereof, covering means for the underside of said
basket type chair comprising panel means having a plu
rality of sets of edge portions, one of said sets comprfs
ing arcuate edge portions coextensive with and united
with the oval shaped upper edge of said body panel inde
pendently of the chair and coextensive with and united
with portions of the oval shaped lower edge of said
body panel independently of the chair and another of
said sets comprising edge portions separably united to
gether to allow placement of said unitary removable
cover on a basket type chair.
2. A cover for a basket chair comprising a body panel
having a pair of adjacent pointed oval shaped secticns
wtih their outer side edges providing upper and lower
edges of the panel and being integral with each other
along the midpoint of the inner side edges of the sec
tions and with the remainder of the inner side edges
joined, said body panel forming a liner for the concave
seat and back of a basket type chair and protectively
extending over the edges of the chair, a pair of back
panels being pointed semioval shaped wiih curved side
- edges and a base edge with the base edges of the back
panels adjacent each other and with one side edge of
each back panel joined to the upper edge of the body
panel to be positioned behind the back of the char, a
leasably drawing the bottom panels 15 and 16 toward
each other and for drawing the bottom edge 22 of the
body panel toward the bottom edges 23 and 26 of the
pair of lower panels being pointed semioval shaped with
back panels, thereby drawing the edge of the body panels
of the body panel and the other side edge of the lower
panel attached to the other side edge of the back panel
over the curved edge of the chair in a protective manner.
For this purpose a draw string 41 is shown threaded
through a seam 42. The seam is continuous and is
curved side edges and a base edge, one side edge of
each lower panel attached to the ends of the lower edge
to be positioned below the seat of the chair, and a draw
string extending through a seam formed at the center of
provided in the bottom edge 22 of the body panel, in
the base edges 37 and 38 of the bottom panels 15 and 16,
the lower side edge of the body panel, at the other side
edges of the back panels, and at the base edges of the
and at the inner ends of the bottom edges 23 and 26 of
