UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

CLYDE E. HORTON, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, ASSIGNO-R TO DETROIT STEEL PRODUCTS COMPANY, OF DETROIT, MICHIGAN, A CORPORATION OF MICHIGAN.

ORNAMEN'IAL DESIGN FOR CASEMENT WINDOWS.

Application filed January 3, 1928. Serial No. 244,270.

The invention relates to windows and refers more particularly to ornamental designs therefor. The invention resides in the novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts as more fully hereinafter set forth.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a front elevation of a window embodying my invention;

Figures 2 and 3 are cross sections,,respectively, on the lines 22 and 3-3 of Figure 1;

Figure a is a front elevation of the ornamental design member;

Figures 5 and 6 are views corresponding respectively to Figures 2 and 3 and showing a modified construction.

As shown in Figures 1, 2 and 3, 1 is the metallic sash of a window, which is made up in the present instance of the frame bars 2 and the muntin bars 3, each bar being formed to present a shoulder at in substantially the plane of the shoulders upon the other bars. As shown, the shoulder 4 upon the frame bar 2 is formed by the flange 5, while the shoulder 4 upon the muntin bar 3 is formed by the flange 6, this latter bar being T-shaped. 7 are panes of glass secured to the bars by the putty beds 8, which latter preferably have portions at the opposite sides of the panes of glass with the portions between the panes of glass and the shoulders forming a cushion for the former.

To give the window an ornamental appearance, I have provided the ornamental design member 9, which is preferably formed from sheet metal, such as copper, for example, preferably by a die stamping operation. This ornamental design member, as shown particularly in Figure 4, has the lugs 10, which are adapted to be bent at right angles to the flat design portion 11 upon the dotted lines 12 to extend adjacent to an edge of a pane of glass, the design portion of the ornamental design member extending adjacent a side of a pane of glass and preferably in contact therewith. This ornamental design member is secured in place by means of a putty bed 8 and preferably between a pane of glass and the sash, at which time the space between the pane of glass and the sash is completely sealed by the ornamental design member and the putty bed.

As shown, the ornamental design member 1s secured between a pane of glass and a pair of intersecting bars, the bars in one instance being the frame bars 2 and in the other instance the muntin bars 3.

It is apparent that this ornamental design member may be readily formed to any desired configuration and may cover either the entlre pane of glass or any part thereof, and furthermore, may be made to cooperate with other ornamental design members to form a medallion. It is also apparent that the ornamental design member may be readily and easily secured in place.

In the modification shown in Figures 5 and 6, the sash of the window is wood, it having the frame bars 13 and the muntin bars 14, these bars having the shoulders 15 in substantially the same plane. The panes of glass and the ornamental design members are, however, arranged and secured in place in the same manner.

What I claim as my invention is:

l. The combination with a window sash and a pane of glass secured to said sash, of an ornamental design member secured to said sash and extending adjacent said pane.

2. The combination with a. window sash and a pane of glass secured to said sash, of a metallic ornamental design member lying against said pane and secured thereby to said sash.

3. The combination with a window sash and a pane of glass secured thereto, of a sheet metal ornamental design member secured between said sash and pane and extending beyond said sash at one side of and contacting with said pane.

4. The combination with a metallic window sash having a flanged bar, a pane of glass, and means for securing said pane to said bar, of an ornamental design member attached between said pane and the flange of said bar.

5. The combination with a metallic window sash having a. flanged bar and a pane of glass, of a sheet metal ornamental design member having portions extending at one edge and one side of said pane with the portion at one side secured against the flange of said bar by said pane and extending beyond the flange and against said pane.

6. The combination With a metallic Window sash having flanged bars and a pane of glass, of a sheet metal ornamental design member having portions secured between said pane 5 and bars, and a design portion lying against and covering a portion of said pane.

7 The combination With a Window having a pane of glass of an ornamental design member arranged in juxtaposition with the glass and fixed relative thereto.

8. The combination With a Window having a pane of glass, of an ornamental design member arranged in contacting relation with the glass and fixed relative thereto.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

CLYDE E. HORTON.
