A folding camp chair in wood and canvas designed especially for the 'yellow cruise' in 1931-1932.

The wood frame is in very good condition and stamped. The canvas is original and has been darned on each corner due to use over the years. Still a fabulous piece of history.

The Yellow Cruise (French: Croisière Jaune) was a French trans-Asian expedition in 1931/1932. It was organized by Citroën in order to promote their P17 Kégresse track vehicles. The expedition started in Beirut and, the capital of French Lebanon and Beijing, the capital of China. One group traveled westward, the other eastward and both met along the route, where the eastbound group turned back allowing both groups to travel to Beijing along a different route.
