Application filed July 10, 1925. Serial No. 42,741.

This invention relates to brackets and more particularly to brackets adapted to support vertical partitions of glass or the like on counters or similar display tables in stores.

The objects of the present invention are.

to provide a bracket of the type indicated of an improved'and simplitied form and structure adapted to lend itself to rapid and economical manufacture, ease of application and superior utility.

The invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement and combination of parts as hereinafter more particularly described and claimed.

One sheet of drawings accompanies this specification as part thereof, in which like reference characters indicate like parts throughout.

Fig. 1 is a plan view of a blank from j which my improved bracket is constructed preliminary to bending.

Fig. 2' is a plan View of the improved bracket.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation the improved bracket.

Fig. 4 is a view looking down on the bracket applied to a counter.

Fig. 5 is a vertical cross section through a counter showing the bracket applied.

Fig. 6 is a diagrammatical view indicating the economical character of the blank with reference to cutting the same from stock.

In accordance with the present invention a piece of sheet metal of suitable thickness is cut in substantiallyT sha e having a. cross arm 1 and a stem 2. S ots 33 are cut into the-head 1 in continuation of the side edges of the stem 2 and slots 4-4; are

V out into the stem 2 substantially in continuation of the inner side edges of the head 1. The blank .is then pressed .or be'nt, the

parts 6-6 of head 1 defined by the-slots 33 and the parts 55 of the stem 2 defined by the slots 4-4 being turned upward in the same direction until perpendicular. to

.the plane of the body of the blank. In

the same side of and this the finished form of the bracket it will be noted that the parts 55 constitute pa- 7 rallel spaced flanges adapted to receive and hold the edge of a plate of glass or the like 10 while the parts 66 constitute flanges in a common plane adapted to lie on the upper face of the counter or table and be secured thereto as by brads 8 passing through holes 7 which may if desired be provided therefor. Aback 11 may be provided for the counter if desired. a

By reason of the T form of the blanks from which my improved bracket is com structed, it will be noted that they may be shaped blank having a head part and a stem part, the sides of the stem upturned to constitute parallel spaced flanges, spaced parts of the head adjacent the stem upturned to constitute flanges in a common plane and perpendicular to the first mentioned flanges.

3. An improved bracket comprising a T shaped blank having a head part and a stem part, the sides of the stem' upturned to con stitute parallel spaced flanges, spaced parts of the head adjacent the sides of the stem upturned to constitute flanges in a common plane perpendicular to the first mentioned flanges, all of said flanges extending on perpendicular to the plane of the blank. v In testimony whereof'I' have aflixed my signature.
