]Be it lmown that I, J AMIES G. MASUMIAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented new and use- Jul 1mprovemcnts in Window-Frame Constructions, of vvhich the following is a specification.

This invention relates to window frame constructions and has for its principal object, the provision of a window :Erame so constructed as to bouse the shade rollers within the frame, thus concealing them from view and at the same time eliminating unsightly nail or screw' holes which are ordrnarily leit exposed when tenants remove the same from the ordinary frame work of the window.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a hinged panel Which allows ready access to the shade rollers for their removal or for the adjustment of the spring tension in the same.

A 1further object of the invention isthe provision of a pair of grooves arranged within the side panels of the window frarne for the reception of cUrtain stays whereby the shade is prevented from bulging.

A. still further object of the mvention is the provision of a window construction of the class described vvhich is 01: simple construction, inexpensive to install and which overcomsmany of the objections to the ones now in common use.

ith these and other objecte in view, the invention resides in the noVel construction, combination and arrangement of parts fully described in the specification, particularly pointed out in the'appended claim and illus* trated in the aocompanying drawing, in which,

Figure 1 is a fragmentary sectional view of the upper portion of a window.

Fig. 2 is a detail sectional view of one of the shades.

Fi 3 is a fragmentary sectional view on the line 3-3 01 Fig. 1.

Fig. 41 is a detail front elevation of the .shade rollers.

Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 55 of Fi 4.. V

Reterring to the drawings by numerals, 10, designates generally a window trame of ordinary construction 'which has extending upwardly therefrom at its forward portion,

springs 23.

a sl1ade roller housing 11. The shade roller housing is provided with a swinging base section 12, which is normally disposed in the same horizontal line with the toppanel 13, of the Window frame. 'llhe swinging base 12, is slightly spaced from the forvvard portion of the top panel 13, to provide an intervening shade guide 14:, therebetween, the said swinging base and panel coacting to limit the projection et the lower ortion et the shade within the housing. pair of shade rollers 15, are mounted in the brackets 16, which are secured within the housing and the shades 17, mounted on said rollers are provided with transversely arranged ribs 18, the outer extremities of which are adapted to work within the grooves 19, vvith Which the side panels 20, are provided. The lower portions of the shades are provided with transversely eXtending hollovv members 21, within Which are mounted the locking rods 22, Which are normally impinged against the inner faces et the grooves by means of the A. pair of manipulatin han-' dles 24, are provided on the rods 22, w ereloy the latter may be relieved from the spring pressure when it is desired to raise or lower the curtain.- '1he swinging base 12, is adapted to be moved to the dotted line position shown in Fig. 1, when it is desired to gain access to the shade rollers to remove the same or adjust the tension 01 the springs.

While 1 have shovvn and described a sim' ple and preferred form 01 my invention, 1

desire to reserve the riglit to make,such

changes and alterations as fall vvithin the scope of the appended daim.

What is claimed as new is 111 a window trame construction 015 the class described, amain trame having several ides, side bars constitutirl rame and extending forwarly loeyond said guides, a top bar also constituting a part of said trame, and a shade roller housing risin% from said side and top l'oars respectively including a SWinging base section dis posed in the same horizontal line vvith said top bar and spaced theref'rom to c0nstitute an intervening shade guide therebetween, the said swingn base also serving to conceal the slxade rol ers.
