The desk is supported by two slightly inclined cor ner legs secured to the floor by angle irons. The upper end of an inclined brace bar is attached near the middle of each leg, the lower end being fastened to the floor. To the upper end of the brace, which bends and projects rectangularly from the edge of the leg, is pivoted the bracket supporting the seat. Each bracket is provided at its inner end with an inwardly and downwardly inclined lug, the end of which rests against the corresponding leg when the seat is lowered, thus preventing the free edge of the seat from swinging down too far. The back of the seat is secured to the legs. This combined desk and seat is simple in construction, strong, and durable. This invention has been patented by Mr. Gustavus Hamel, of De Soto, Missouri.
