This invention relates to folding chairs, and
has for one of its objects the production of a
simple and e?‘lcient chair which is so constructed
as to support the seat and back rest in a plurality
of adjusted positions.
A further object of this invention is the pro
duction of a simple and ei‘?cient assembly of parts
of the chair which may be so adjusted as to sup

seat-supporting rod 24 is secured at its opposite
ends to the side rails 2I of the back rest 22 and

see Figure 4. A transversely extending dowel rod
25 connects the lower ends of the rails 2| below
the rod 2d. The ends 26 of the rod 25 project lat
