An additional object of the invention is to provide such

the arm member is arranged to be locked in either such
position.
Additional objects and advantages of the invention will
be apparent from the following detailed description
thereof.
The chair arm construction of the present invention
comprises a tubular member and a tubular supporting
member mounted for pivotal movement on the tubular
member, the supporting member in one position form
ing the front end of the chair and in another position
providing a supporting surface on the chair arm.
In
the vertical position the tubular members of the arm
construction present an attractive arm appearance, and
in the horizontal position the tubular supporting mem
ber projects laterally from the chair arm and provides
a support for drinking glasses, ashtrays, or similar
extending tubular members 19 and 22, or a clearance or
space may be provided between these ends and the tubu
25 lar portion of the arms provided, of course, that the clear
ance or space is not so large as to interfere with the glass
or other article supporting function of the supporting
member 22. The opening in the front end of this mem
ber is so dimensioned as to permit insertion and close
?tting support of a glass 26 (see FIGURE 1), ashtray, or
other desired object therein.
One end of the outer tubular member 21 is pivotally se
cured to the chair frame ‘14 and a sleeve 27 is ?xedly
mounted in the opposite end 21' thereof. An end 27’ of
the sleeve 27 protrudes outward of the end 21’ of the
tubular member and a tubular extension 22’ of the sup
porting member 242 is pivotally mounted on the protrud
ing end 27’. In the structure shown in FIGURE 2 of
the drawings, the end 21' of the outer tubular member

position the detent 29 engages with and locks in the aper

As shown in FIGURES 2 and 3, the arm v17 comprises
a ?rst hollow tubular member 19 and a second hollow
tubular member 21 positioned in side by side relation

order to pivot the supporting member 22 back into the
vertical position, the detent 29 is again depressed and
the member 22 is pivoted into the vertical plane, best

The arm 18 may be the same as arm 17, or may consist
of two tubular members 19 in side by side relation, neither
of which involves the pivoting arm construction provided
by the assembly of the sleeve 27 and the supporting mem-;
ber 22.
It will be noted that the present invention provides a
a pair of legs supporting said frame, a pair of chair arms
secured to said legs, at least one of said arms including
a pair of tubular members ‘in side by side relation form
