My invention relates to a cornice supportand more particularly to a cornice support combined with a curtain rod bracket, and the object ot my invention is to provide a device of the above indicated character which is capable oi being secured to a window traine for supporting a plurality of curtain rods and for rigidly securing acornice in place. v
My invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawing forming a part ot' this specification and in which,
Figure l is an yelevational view ot a cornice support incorporating my invention.
Figure 2 is a top planview ot that disclosed in Figure l.
Figure 3 is a perspective view oit my cornice support showing the manner in which the cornice is secured in place thereby.
Figure et is an elevational view showing a window trame with a cornice and curtains mounted in position, and showing my invention applied thereto.
Figure 5 is a crossfsectional view ot the window frame disclosed in Figure l and a top plan view ot the cornice, the curtain rods and my invention as applied.
For the purpose ot illustration and as dis closed in the drawings I have shown the preferred embodiment ot my invent-ion in which 1Q represents a window frame having my cornice support 11 secured thereto by screws 12 in the usual manner, and 'having a part ot curtain rods 13 and 11i positioned in the holders l5 and 15 which consist oit metal stampings and which are secured to the supporting member 17 by suitable rivets 18 and 19. The one end of the supporting member 17 is bent over forming a member il() adapted to engage the window traine 10. Said member 2O is provided with openings 2i through which the screws 12 are passed for securing the bracket to the window trame as best shown in Figure 5, and a cornice 22 of any suitable composition is shown having a pin 23 secured therein.
The pin 23 is adapted to tit into the curved slot 24 in the upper side ot bracket 17 for supporting the cornice and the cornice is provided with a vertical edge 25 adapted to tit. snugly against the window traine as shown. Near the forward end ot the bracket 17 is provided a cam member 2S which is pivoted on a rivetli' and secured by the same to member 17. The cani 2G is provided with a lug 27 by which said cam may be' rearward end ot slot 24: and as a resultit locks the edge or tace into engagement with the window trame 10 since the pin 23 is rigidly secured tothe cornice 2Q, by through thread engagement therewith in case the cornice is made of wood, or by being moulded permanently therein in case the cornice is made of plasteriot Paris or the like.
For a clear understanding Vofthe application of my device I have shown in Figures et and 5 a window frame l0 with curtains 28 and 29 mounted on the rods 13 and istl respectively and showing the cornice locked into position. i
Vhile I have described my invention in its preferred form it is obvious thatvariations may be made 4therein without departing from the spirit of my invention and I donot 'therefore wish to be limited to the precise details ot the construction set tor-th, but desire to avail myself oit' such variations and modifications as come within the scope of the appended claims.
