Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 116,811,dated July 11, 1871.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, NIcHOLAs COLLIGNON, CLAUDiUs O. COLLIGNON, and ADAM COLLIG- NON, of Closter, in the county of Bergen and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Folding Chairs; and We d o hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof,which Will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification.

Our invention consists in improving a folding chair, as hereinafter fully described and subsequently pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawing, Figure 1 represents a sectional side elevation of the chair as when ready for use. Fig. 2 represents the chair as folded up. Fig. 3 is a top view of the seat, partly in section, to show the construction.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

A is the seat. B is the back, forming the front legs. C represents the rear legs, the upper ends of Which support the front of the seat. D is a joint-bar on each side of the seat, which connects the rear legsl C with the seat by pivot attachments, as seen at E E. There is a doWel-pin on the end of each of the rear legs, which fits into holes in the front of the seat. The dowel is seenat F, Fig. 2. The joint-bar D allows the seat to be pivoted to the back of the chair and to fold up against the back in a compact form, as seen in Fig. 1. The seat is made of an outside frame, G, and of slats bent or curved, .as seen in Fig. '1, and mortised into the frame, as seen in Fig. 3: In this manner the seat is made easy and handsome in appearance, and m'ost durable in character.

Having thus described our invention, We claim
