tions and arrangements of the parts without de
parting from the scope of my invention.
What is claimed is:
l. Venetian blind construction comprising, a
pair of brackets adapted to be mounted on a win
dow frame and each including a member disposed
in a vertical plane normal to said frame, one of
A facia board I6
is provided having a width substantially equal
tothe height of the plate II> and having a length
very nearly as great as the distance between the
15 plates I I. The facia board I6 is placed at its
respective ends immediately inwardly of the for
ward ñanges Il of the respective brackets.
head board to rest upon, the second of said mem- ‘
bers having a horizontal series of spaced projec
tions on the inner side thereof for the second end
of a headboard to rest upon', and a headboard
resting at its respective ends on said means and
said projections, the second end of said board
being cut away in portions to leave spaced projec 15
tions normally approximately registering with and
resting upon the projections of said second
bracket whereby said second end of the headboard
may be moved laterally to shift the projections
Small blocks I1 are secured to the inner side of
the facia board I6 by suitable means- so as to
20 occupy the space between the upper portion of thereof out of registration with the projections of 20
the facia board I6 and the forward edge of the said second bracket to en_able downward move
headboard 9 as shown in Figures 2 and 3. It ment of said second end relative to said second
should be apparent that the facia board I6 with bracket.
2. The structure defined in claim 1 and release
the blocks I1 thereon will prevent forward move
ble means for normally restraining the second
25 ment of the headboard 9 from its normal posi
tion. The facia board I6 may be moved'up-` end of said board against movement out of its nor
Wardly out of engagement with the flanges IA mal position.
3. Venetian blind construction comprising, a
when it is desired to release the headboard 9 for
forward movement thereof out of normal posi
30 tion. To support the facia board I6 when the
same is engaged with‘the flanges I4 a rearwardly
projecting element I8 is formed on the lower edge
’\ of each of the forward ñanges I4. The rearmost
, portion I8a of each of the elements I8 is turned
35 upwardly to restrain the lower marginal portion
of the facia board I6 from rearward movement.
From the above it should be apparent that the
headboard 9 is normallyl supported by the ears
lib of the above described brackets and the head
40 board 9 is restrained from movement out of at
least partial registration with the ears I5b by the
facia board I6 and blocks I‘I. The blocks I1 need
only be used where the facia board I6 is thinner
than the distance between the forward iianges
45 Il and the headboard 9.
'I'he plates II of the supporting brackets and_
the facia board I6 serve not only as described
above, but also function to conceal the headboard
9, the bar 6, the bracket B and the device I 0.
50. The plates II of .the brackets and the forward
surface'of the facia board I6 comprise smooth
surfaces which may be colored or votherwise
finished to present a pleasing appearance.
-When a Venetian blind with my brackets, head
55 board and facia board is- installed the brackets
are iirst secured to the window frame in suitably
spaced vrelation to each other. The headboard
may next be sawed oif at its right `hand end to'
pair of headboard-supporting brackets adapted to
be mounted on a window frame and each includ
ing a plate disposed in a vertical plane normal
to said frame and a horizontally extending flange
mounted on said plate to project horizontally- to
ward the remaining one of said brackets, and a
headboard normally resting at its respective ends
on the flanges of said lrespective brackets, one of
said flanges and the end of said headboard asso
ciated therewith both being cut away in portions
to leave respective normally approximately regis
tering sets of spaced projections whereby said end
of the headboard may be moved laterally to shift
the projections thereon out'of registration with
the projections on said bracket to permit' down
ward movement of said end past the projections
Von said bracket.
4. Venetian blind construction comprising, a y
pair of brackets adapted to be _mounted on a win
dow frame and each including a member disposed
.in a vertical plane normal to said frame, one of
said members having means for one end of a 50
headboard to rest upon, the second of said mem
-bers having a horizontal series of spaced projec
tions on the inner side thereof for the second end
of ‘a headboard to rest upon, a headboard resting
at-its respective ends on said means and said 55
projections, the second end of said board being
cut away in portions to lea`ve spaced projections
normally approximately registering with and
extend nearly through the entire distance between
60 the plates II of the respectivel brackets. The
facia board may also be sawed on to a similar
length. Since the ends of the headboard 9 and
resting upon the projections of said second
bracket whereby said second end of the headboard 60
may be moved laterally to shift the projections
thereof out of registration with the projections of
facia board I6 are concealed it is unnecessary to
.use particular accuracy in determining the length
65 to which they are cut.
It is apparent that I have invented a simple,
bracket, means restraining said second end 65
compact, easily operated, and inexpensive combi
nation oi' supporting brackets, headboard and
facia board for Venetian blinds wherein the
70 brackets and facia board not only serve for neces
sary mechanical functions but also serve _as con
cealing means for certain relatively unsightly por
tions of a Venetian blind.

It will, of course, be understood that various
75 changes may be made -in the form, details, propor
said second bracket to enable downward move
ment of said second end relative to said second
against lateral movement in one direction, and
releasable means normally restraining said sec
ond end against lateral movement in the other
direction.

5. Venetian blind construction comprising, a 70
pair of brackets adapted to be mounted on a win
dow frame and each including a member disposed
in a vertical plane normal to said frame, one of
said members having means for one end of a head
board to rest upon, the second' of said members
