2 Claims. (Cl. 15G-33) This invention relates to a window drapery spacer whereby the drapery is held a suflicient distance from the windowso that the roll shade can move freely up and down without interfering with the drapery.
An object of my invention isto provide a draj pery spacer which is simplein construction, inexpensive to manufacture, and which is incon- -spicuous when applied to the window.
A feature of my invention resides in the simple and effective means of spacing a drapery from the window and particularly the type of drapery utilizing a tie-back.
Other objects,` advantages and features of invention may appear from the accompanying drawing, the subjoined detailed description and the appended claims.
In the drawing: y y.
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the drapery spacer in position on a window frame, the drapery being shown in dotted lines.A
Figure 2 is a fragmentary, transverse sectional view of the window frame with the spacer in position, the draper being shown in section.
Figure 3 is a front elevation of the spacer.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, the numeral I indicates the window frame which encloses the window 2. The draperyS is arranged over the window and is held to one side by means of a tie-back 4. The spacer 5 conssts of a strip of suitably rigid material, such s as metal, plastic or the like, and the outer end is attached to the frame l by suitable means such as the screws 6. The blade 1 of the spacer y and integral therewith, said flange being adapted Vextends inwardly back of the drapery 3 and is preferably inclined downwardly so as to conform to the angle of the tie-back 4.- At the inner end of the blade 1 a sharp point 8 is provided, vwhich is forced into the tie-back 4 `for-the purpose of 5 holding this tie-back in position. The blade 1 is spaced inwardly from the wndow'frame I, a
suitable distance for example, by means of offset 9 if desired. The spacer can be attached tothe inner edge of the frame instead of theface as 10 shown in Figures 1 and 2. The mounting ange, blade and sharp tip vare all preferably integrally formed so as to provide a simple and inexpensive device. As shown in -Figure 2, the drapery is held away from the window and the usual roller` rshade can pass up or downwithout interfering with the drapery .or striking the tie' back 4. I
Having described my invention, I claim:
1. A window draperyl spacer comprising a 20,
blade adapted to bear against the drapery,A a
`flange integrally formed with the blade, said ange being adapted and arranged to be secured to the window frame, and a sharp tip on the outer end of the blade.
2. A window drapery spacer comprising a blade adapted to bear against the window side of the drapery, an offset integrally formed with the blade, a ange extending from the offset and arranged to'be secured to the window frame, 30
and a sharp tip on the outer end of the blade.v
