Grosh and Foreman's patent had for its objective "to furnish a table for ironing shirts, skirts, and other articles, which shall be convenient in use and not bulky to handle or transport; and it consists in a folding-table so constructed that the ironing board or leaf may be raised for putting on or taking off a shirt or skirt or other similar article, and the whole be made to fold together, so as to occupy but little space when not in use."
