2 Claims.

The primary object of the present invention is to provide a new and improved article of manufacture of a characteristicallymasculine type. A

Another object is to provide a new and improved article of manufacture of the character set forth, having improved means whereby any person may sit thereon in the usual manner, ,or A

straddle the seat thereof, facing rearwardlyand leaning upon the back thereof in truly masculine comfort. A c A -A A further object is to provide anew and improved article of manufacture of the type described, in which receptacles or recesses are provided in the upper edge of said back, for the re- I accomplish these and other objectsby means of the improved article of manufacture disclosed in the drawing forming a part of the present apa substantially vertical and preferably horizontally arcuate back 2 rising' in the usual manner and having wings 3 arranged on both sides of the top of said back 2, the lower edges of said wings 3 being arranged in spaced relation with the seat l of said chair I so as toiform an appreciably reduced portion 4 at the lower portion of said back 2 and providing spaces 6 between said lower edges of said wings 3 and said seat I, for reception of the legs of an occupant straddling said seat and facing said back 2, as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 1 of the drawing. 1

A

n For the convenience of an occupant straddling the chair and facing rearwardly, recesses 9 may be provided in the top edge of the back2 for the r A reception of such masculine comforts ,andac cessories as cigars, cigarettes, matches, or an ashtray, not shown.
