CURTAIN-ROID BRACKET.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application led January 30, 1909. Serial No. 475,289.

To all w11 om 'it may concern.'

Be it known that I, FREDERICK W. DoHM, a. citizen of the United States residing at St. Paul, in the county of Ramsey and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new features of construction and combination' hereinafter described and claimed.

ln the accompanying drawings formingr part or" this specification, Figure l is a perspective view of my improved curtain rod Supports shown in connection with a curtain rod, Fig. 2 is a top elevation showing the 'supports arranged inside the window frame, Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the supports or brackets arranged on the outer side of the window frame1 and Fig'. 4 is a section of one of the brackets on line .1r-.n of Fig'. l. l

In the drawings A represents one of a cooperating pair of curtain rod supporting brackets and B represents the other bracket.

(l represents an ordinary curtain rod. 'i'he bracket A comprises two connected Walls 2 and 3 standing at right angles with each other and each formed with openings 4 through which suitable securing means may be passed to support the bracket upon the 'windowrame Extending inwardly from the wall 3 parallel to the wall 2 is a socket 5 to receive one endof the `curtain rod. The coperating bracket l is similarly composed of two-connected walls 6 and 7 standing at right angles with each other and each formed with openings 8 'through which curing' means may be passed to fasten the bracket to the window frame. Secured to the wall 7 and vextendinlti: inwardly alongside of the Wall 6 is a socket piece 9 to reparticularly 2 and 6 of the brackets.

ceive the adjacent end of the curtain. rod.

Patented Marr25, 1913.1

The socket piece 9 is o en on its forward side to allow the end o thecurtain rod to be dropped into, or lifted therefrom.

In use, where it is desired to support the rod inside the window frame D, as shown in Fig. 2, the brackets A and B are secured to the opposed inner sides of the frame. by screws 10 or similar securing means passed through the openings in the Walls 3 and 7 of the brackets. The curtain rod'l may then be placed in position by inserting one end of the rod in the socket piece 5 and dropping the other 'end into the socket piece 9. Where it is desired to support acurtain rod outside the frame as indicated in Fig. 3 the brackets are supported upon the outer faces of the frame by passing securimgy means through the openings in the walls Thus the same brackets may be used to support a curtain rod on either the inside of the window frame or upon the outside, rendering unnecessary the use of ditterentV sets of curtain rods as.

ncr face of the connecting wall, said socket piece having an open front whereby to form a top and bot-torn' part of the socket piece above the curtain rod vwhen in position thereon.

In testimony whereof I aftix my signature 4in presence of two witnesses.
