Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 31, 1912.

Application filed December 17, 1910. Serial No. 597,784.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, OSCAR S. GAGE and THOMAS E. HAsKE'rr, citizens of the United States, residing at Shawnee, in the county of Pottawatomie and State of Oklahoma, have invented new and useful Improvements in Curtain and Drapery Supports, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in curtain and drapery supports.

The invention has for its object the pro-- vision of simple and improved means whereby a shade roller, a curtain pole and a drapery pole may all be supported from a single pair of brackets adapted to be secured to a window frame.

A further object is to provide a fixture of this character in which the curtain shade roller may be secured within the window recess, and the curtain and drapery poles correspondingly supported.

With these objects in view the invention will be hereinafter fully set forth and particularly pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings':Figure l is a perspective view of a, window with our invention applied thereto. Figs. 2 and 3 are views illustrating the individual brackets.

Referring to the drawing, designates a bracket formed of suitable metal and provided at one end with a screw 11 and an abutment 12, whereby the bracket may be readily and easily secured to the woodwork of the window frame. The bracket is provided wit-h a straight shank 13 and an upwardly curved arm 14 terminating in curved fingers 15 forming a socket for the drapery pole 16. The forward finger 15- is somewhatlonger than the otherto prevent the pole leaving the socket should the curtain swing forward in a strong breeze, or for any other reason. At the junction of the shank 13 and arm 14 the bracket is thick- -ened and provided with upwardly projecting curved fingers 17 serving as a socket for a curtain pole, and immediately back of said fingers the upper edge of the shank 13- is provided with slotted lug 18 to receive the bearings of the shade roller. The bracket which is designed to receive the cylindrical bearing pin of the shade roller is provided with an upwardly extending lug 18 provided with a circular opening 19 for said bearing. It will be understood that the brackets are used in pairs, the bracket with the fingers 18 being at one side of the window frame and the largement 18 beingat the other end. i

In practice the brackets are screwed in the top of the window frame until the abutments 12 contact therewith, the shank 13 extending parallel with the under face of the topof the window frame and the fingers 15 extending upwardly, projecting slightly beyond the face of the window frame. In this manner the shade roller and the curtain pole are both supported inside of the frame, the curtain pole extending forward of the shade roller ance for the shade.

It will also be noted that the socket formed by fingers 17 is in a lower plane than that formed by fingers 15 but above the plane of the topedge of the body of the shank. k

Having thus explained the natureof our invention and described an operative manner of constructing and using the same, although without attempting to set forth all of the forms in which it may be made, or all of the forms of its use, what we claim is A bracket of the character described formed with a straight shank having one end curved upwardl the extremity of the curved portion being rovided with oppo sitely curved inner an outer rigid-fingers forming a curtain pole socket the outer finger being longer than the inner finger, the other end of said shank being provided with a threaded stem, said shank being thickened bracket with the en- .70 and allowing clearat the junction of said curved end with said shank the thickened ortion having its up per edge provided with upwardly projecting' oppositely curved fingers forming a g emma drapery pole socket in a lower plane than set our hands in presence of two subscribthe first socket and close to sald first socket ing Witnesses.

but in a higher plane than the top of said shank, and an integral lug intermediate beg gg 5 tween said threaded stem and the drapery pole socket and provided with a single open- Witnesses:

ingto support a shade roller. L. WHEELER,
