'2 Claims. ‘ (cL'24s-256)
My invention relates to improvements in com
bination shade and curtain supports.
.My invention is designed primarily to provide a
combination unitary support of this character
i 5
embodying shade brackets and both curtain and
over-drape brackets: ‘and extensible, as a unit, to
vary the distance between the shade brackets, for
differentlengths of shade rollers, and the length
of the curtain and over-drape brackets in ?xed
10 relation to accommodate curtains and over-drapes
Figure 5 is a view in section taken on the line ‘ _
5-5 of Figure 3 looking forwardly of said support.
> Referring to the drawing by numeral, the illus
tratedembodiment of my invention comprises a
pair of shade supporting brackets I each compris
ing an intermediate web part 2 designed to sup
port the shade roller 3 in the usual manner, a
right angled base flange 4 adapted to be attached
as by screws 5 to the window casing, indicated
at 6, and a right angled extension ‘I projecting
of different widths, the shade brackets being in , laterally from the web part 2 toward the outer
dependently adjustable to vary the distance be

An extensible over-drape bracket I4 is mounted
upon the coupling members II as follows. The
over-drape bracket I4 comprises a pair of ?at
bars I5 connected together in end to end aligned
relation by means of a sleeve-like coupling I5’
similar to coupling Ill and in which the opposed
ends of the bars I5 are slidably mounted so that 35
said bracket is lengthwise extensible. The op

for adjustment of the over-drape bracket to and
from the curtain bracket.

shaped coupling members II each comp-rising
the following description and claims, respectively.

bracket 8 and to provide forwardly extending ’
arms I9 spaced from the ends of the coupling

bracket is adjustable toward and from the curtain
bracket 8.
The bars: I8 are preferably mounted
upon the coupling members II by means of sleeve
like guide plates 25, secured to the coupling in any
suitable manner and in which the bars I8 are 50
mounted for sliding'adjustment to ?xed positions

The shade brackets I may be formed of any 55

extremities I‘! on the bars I5 and the coupling
members I0 and I5’.
As will be clear the shade brackets I may be

It is to be understood, however, that the details
described in the foregoing are illustrative rather
than restrictive and that right is herein reserved
to modi?cations of such details falling within
the scope of the claims appended hereto.
What I claim is:
l. A combination shade and curtain support
for attachment to a Window casing comprising, a
pair of shade supporting brackets adapted to be
attached to said casing and having a ‘lateral ex 10
tension, respectively, an extensible curtain bracket
having its opposite ends slidably mounted on said
extensions, and a second extensible curtain
bracket having its opposite ends slidably mounted
on the ends of the ?rst mentioned curtain 15
2. A combination shade and curtain support
II and said coupling members on the curtain ‘ for attachment to a window casing comprising,
shade brackets I the curtain bracket 8 and over-_ a pair of shade supporting brackets adapted to

lation as regards relative length and by adjusting
the right angled bars I8 on the coupling members
‘contracted. By detaching the coupling members
-II from the shade brackets I both the curtain
and drape brackets may be removed as a unit
‘and "by detaching the bars“ I5 from the bars I8
25 ‘the over-drape bracket may be detached alone.
As will be clear the over-drape bracket I4 may be
adjusted toward and from the curtain bracket by
sliding its extremities I‘! back and forth upon
the bars I8.
The foregoing is a detailed description of a pre
ferred embodiment of my invention and it is be- ~
lieved that its construction and advantages will
be clear therefrom.

coupling members slidably mounted on said lat
eral extensions, respectively, and slidably sup
porting the opposite ends of a curtain rod in ad
vance of said shade brackets, and a pair of angled
bars, a guide member carried by each coupling
member for said angled bars to slidably support
said angled bars, for adjustment lengthwise of
said curtain support.
