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
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.
