Also described as an Invalid Bedstead, Buttenheim’s patent improvement “…relates to a lounge in which everything almost is contained which pertains to the comfort of a nursery. Within it are arranged a bureau, a writing-desk with shelves, a folding table, an easy chair, and a night-chair, of which either can be used at a time or more than once, as may be desired. All these devices can be concealed so that a common lounge only will be visible.” (Patent Number 68,164)
