Ot the accompanying dremnngs7 forming L part of this specification, Figure l represents nperspee tive View of n chairembodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents s front elevntion of portions of the elisir and its attachments. Fig. 3 represents s. side elevntion showing portions of the elisir and n portion of one of the hinged trays.
The saine reference ehn-renters indicate tlpy some parts in :ill the lignres.

To the under sido of the table nre attached nne'nlnr ours or lugs l) l), wln'ell nro sdnpted lo slide lengthwise of the arms and lntve portions which bear upon theinneredpes oi'ftlnarms to prej Vent horizontal displacement of the table crosswise of the arms, and pm tions whnh l vent upward displacement of the table,
YIt will be seen that the tnhle muy be grasped by 'the hands of a person sitting in the @heir and moved hsokwsrdly until it is engaged withine extensions e2 of the arms, 1
