Lette-rs Patent No. 68,973, dated September 17,1867. A
IMPBOVED CHAIR, LOUNGE, AND STEP-LADDER.
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: V
Be `it known that I, JOSEPH GERDOM, Jr., of West Albany, in the 'county oi' Albany, and State of New York, have invented a new and combined Chair, Lounge, and Step-Ladder; and Ido hereby declare that thel following isa full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable those skilled in the art torinake'and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in whichw Figure 1 represents a. side elevation of my improved step-ladder.
Figure 2 is a. longitudinal sectional elevation of my improved chain Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional elevation of my improved lounge or bed.
Figure 4 is a bottom plan View of the latter. i
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
This invention relates to a new and useful device which will be of great use in stores and magazines of all i descriptions, and-which is so arranged that it can be set up as a chair, stepdadder, or lounge,` as may be desired.
The invention consists in connecting by means of hinges two frames, of which one is a complete chair, without front legs. The front edge of the seat is hinged to the other frame, which is a portion of a. step-ladder having a cushioned front; and the under side f the chair frame has also steps which lie closenpon the steps of the front frame. When the front frame is folded, so that its cushioned board is horizontal, the latter will i form a continuation of the seat of the chair,iand a bed or-lounge is thus formed. When from the chair-position i the chair is folded over the front frame so that it will beturned bottom up, and stand on,4 its head-rest, the steps on the chair will be brought so as to form a continuation of the steps on the front frame, and a stepladder is thus provided,4 Suitable hooks or braces are provided to unite'thetwo portions in any one of the three positions.
A represents a chair, having a scat, a, head-rest b, rear legs c, and .arm-supports d; the latter can be omitted if desired. The front edge of the seat A and the lowerendsof the legs c are connected by three, more or less, steps a e, which are secured to the under side of the seat, or to the frame upon which the latter rests, by means of upright bars or supports ff, as is clearly shown in figVZ. The front-edge of the seat ais connected by means of hinges g to a frame or ladder, B,which consists of` front supports h z, three, more or less, steps z', and supports or frames jj, for the latter. The chairArests upon the ladder B in such `a manner that the steps ee rest upon the steps as is-clearly shown in iig. 2. cis a hook, by which the legs c or a brace which connects the same,l are-connected with and secured tothe outer edge of the lower step 2', as shown, whereby the stability of thechair is insured. This chair, which is completely shown in fig. 2, can be used in all stores, counting-houses, and all places of business, as well as in private dwellings, in libra-ries, nite. ``The u space between the front legs t ofthe chair is cushioned, or otherwise arranged,` so` that it Awill `correspond with the seat of the chair,- which may be formed of rattan, or of springs, moss, or hair, as may be desired. When the frame B is turned around itspivots gi, in the direc-tion of the arrow 1 in iig'. 2, it will be brought into such a position that the device rests partly upon the edge ofA the lower step z' and upon the .lower step e, as shown in g. 3. The cushioned or soft connection between thc legs 7i will be on or almost onptlie same level with the seat a of the chair, as shown, and the device can be used as a bed or lounge.V llare braces, by which the i frames A and B are secured in the position shown in g. An extension-plate, 7L', may be hinged to the` lower ,end ofthe legs 7L, which, when the lounge is set up, can be folded out, as shown by red lines in figs. 3` and 4. This extension may be provided with legs t, that can be folded `together with. it when not used, as shown in g. 1. When the chair is again supposed to be set up, and the upper frame A is turned on its pivot g in the'direction ofthe arrow 2 in lig. 2, the upper ends of the head-rcst #come upon the ground and form a support forv the frame A, which is then turned bottom up; the steps on thc-frame A will be' arranged so as to i form a continuation of the steps z', on theframe B, whereby a regular step-ladder, as shown in g. 1, is arranged. The cushions which formed the seats on the chair and lounge are then held on the inside of the stairs, asis clearly shown in the drawing.-
I claim as new, and desireto secure by Letters Patent- ,4
In the chair and step-ladder, combined as described, I claim the arrangement of the additional piece It withits'leg h, Aforming a lounge,` and the fastening-wires Z'l, substantially as described for the purpose specified.
The above specification of my invention signed by me this 18th day of May, 1867.
