Batton Convertible Chair

The Batton Patent Convertible Chair (sometimes spelled Convertable Chair) was an adjustable wood-frame chair with leather seat, back and leg rests held in position by metal rods and cables. It was considered "the world's favorite for invalids". It was designed by John Batton of Selma and patented in 1885. Batton moved the operation to Woodlawn before 1904.
