These and more speci?c objects will be made evident in the course of the following speci?ca tion, reference being had to the accompanying 25 drawing wherein Figure 1 is a perspective view showing my in vention in use, the window frame and curtain rod being shown fragmentally. Figure 2 is a perspective view of my invention 30 alone. tain (not shown) thereon is supported rigidly by the arm H since it transmits the weight back 20 to the arm 8 which,-bearing back against the wall F, sustains the arm I I and the weight of the curtain as will be understood. The arm H cannot itself bend under the weight since it stands edgewise to the strain. In this manner the weight is actually supported against the wall 25 and the pins 9 serve only to; hold the device in place on the frame and ‘consequently they will not readily become loosened. In any event the mounting is entirely on the edge of the frame 30 Referring now with more particularity to the . and the face thereof cannot be marred. drawing, Figure 1 thereof shows the upper right The brackets are of course made in pairs for corner portion of a window frame A and an end use on both the right and left sides of the window, portion of a conventional tubular form of cur the only difference in construction being the di 35 tain rod B which has an extremity C turned at rection in which the various bends are made. 35 right angles and adapted to be supported hori- , ‘While I have herein set forth a certain, pre zontally across the frame A a short distance be low the upper edge D of the frame.

This I also mars the appearance of the frame and it 45 soon becomes very unsightlyn My invention provides a holder or ‘bracket 5 made up from a single long strip of metal or other suitable material bent at right angles to its length at 6 to form‘ a mounting arm ‘I and 50 bracing arm 8 extended at right angles and adapted thereby to fit over the upper corner por tion of the frame A, as shown in Figure 1. In this position the arm 1 overlies the upper edge D of the frame and it may be secured thereto by 55 means of pins or prongs 9 which are secured at ID to the arm and in use are driven into'the. frame. These pins 9 might also take the form of pointed teeth punched out of the arm itself. The ferred embodiment of my invention, it‘ is under stood that I may vary from the same in minor details, so as best to provide a practical device for the purposes intended, not departing from the 40 spirit of the invention and within the scope of the appended claim. ' I claim: A ‘curtain rod bracket for mounting over the ' upper corner of ' a window frame projecting in 45 wardly from the wall surface, the said bracket comprising an integral strip including a mount ing arm adapted for ?atly overlying the upper edge of the window frame, a bracing arm adapted to extend downwardly and ?atly overlie the outer 50 lateral edge of the frame, a horizontallyextended rod supporting arm, and a backwardly turned spring tongue at the extremity of the rod sup porting arm, the said tongue being adapted for resiliently and frictionally engaging the inturned 55 .tubular end of a curtain rod. 5 JOHN ZBOCK.
