The object of Percheron's invention "is to produce a traveling-bag which will be capable of being converted, when dsired, into a stool; and it consists in the employment of suitable folding legs pivoted in a metallic rim or frame secured to the bottom of the bag in such a way that they may be spread out or extended to support the bag itself, thus forming a stool, or be folded up compactly, in order to allow the bag to be employed as an ordinary satchel."
