UNITED STATES PATENT @rricn.

GEORGE E. ROBINSON, OF ENGLEVVOOD, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO HIMSELF AND EDIVARD B. FLETCHER, OF SAME PLACE.

CURTAIN-HOLDER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 584,148, dated June 8, 1897.

Application filed December 31, 1896. Serial No. 617,583. (No modelJ To all whom it may concern;

Be it known that I, Gnonen F. ROBINSON, a citizen of the United States, residin g at Englewood, in the county of Bergen and State of New Jersey, have invented an Improvement in Curtain-I-Iolders, of which the following is a specification.

Curtains for the glass panels or Windows in vestibule-doors are often stretched tightly, and difficulty has been experienced in securing such curtains within the surrounding woodwork without injury to the curtain and so that the curtain can be rapidly removed or replaced; and the object of the present in vention is to provide a light clamping-frame for receiving the curtain and holdingthe same in position within the surrounding frame and over the glass or window, and this improvement is available where curtains are applied directly over the glass in a window-sash or other frame. I make use of a strip having pins or points adapted to engage the curtain, and a second strip to cover the points and form an ornamental finish to the frame, the covering-strip being advantageously sprung into position, so as to aid in holding the curtain.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation showing two corners of the frame and a portion of the curtain. larger size, of the strips used in the frame; and Figs. 3 and a are similar views representing modifications.

The pins 2 are at suitable distances apart for the curtain to be impaled upon them near its edge, and these pins are in a suitable base or support. In Figs. 1 and 2 the base 3 is shown as a strip of metal of the necessary thickness for the pins to be cut from the edge and bent up, as indicated in Fig. 1, and in Fig. i the pins 2 and the base 3 are represented as part of the metal strip 4, the parts 3 and 4 being folded at 5 and the opposite edge turned up to form a hollow bead or rib 6. In Fig. 3 the pins 2 are represented as insorted into a base 7, which may be of wood.

The covering-strip 8 is usually of sheet metal and one edge is bent over as a curved flange, as seen in Figs. 2 and 4, to sit within the hollow rib 6 and form with it a hinge upon which the cover 8 can be lifted and turned back, as illustrated in Fig. 2, so as to give Fig. 2 is an end view, in.

access to the pins 2 for impaling the edge of the curtain upon them or for removing such curtain, and the edge of the cover 8 is preferably folded double, as shown at 9, to form a smooth rounding edge that comes into contact with the fabric of the curtain.

Both edges of the cover 11 may be similarly folded double, as shown in Fig. 3, to clasp over the beveled or undercut edges of the base '7, as shown in Fig. 3, or the edge 9 of the cover 8 may come inside the hollow rib 12, as seen in Figs. 1 and 2, or may come outside the folded edge 5, as seen in Fig. 4. In either instance the spring of the cover is availed of for bolding such cover in position when closed down. It is now to be understood that the base and cover are to be formed of strips of any desired length and out off of suitable length to fit within the frame of the door or window that receives the glass, and it is advantageous to miter these strips at the ends, as seen in Fig. 1, and angle-wires 15 can be inserted in the hollow rib 6 for holding the parts together at the angle, and when the covers are swung back from these strips the edges of the curtain can be impaled upon the pins 2 and the covers pressed down into position, so as to clamp the curtain fabric and at the same time act to tighten the same, and this is advantageously done when the frame has been taken out from the door or other frame and laid down upon a table, and then the frame and curtain can be placed into the door or other frame and held by any suitable means. I have shown a conical ornament 14: with a screw-shank adapted to be screwed into the wood of the door or frame at each angle, and thereby to hold the curtain-frame securely in position, and by the removal of these cornerscrews the frame can be taken out whenever it is desired to change the curtain.

While it is primarily intended that the curtain shall be stretched flat and tight, it can be placed within the frame with folds or plaits, as may be desired, and the frame may be placed close to the glass or it may be attached upon the surface of the door.

Where desired, I may employ only two of the sheet-metal strips hereinbefore described,

zontal edges of the curtain or at the opposite and over which the curtain is stretched, and

one edge thereof turned over to form a hollow bead or rib, and a separate concave sheetmetal cover-strip having one'end upturned and adapted to pass in beneath the edge bead or rib of the base and hinge therewith, and at its other edge adapted to be sprung into engagement with the base and nip the curtain, substantially as specified.

3. A frame for holding curtains, comprising a base-strip having pins rising therefrom and over which the curtain is stretched, and one edge thereof turned over to form a hollow bead or rib and the other edge formedas a'rib, and a separate concave sheet-metal cover-strip having one edge upturned andadapt-ed to pass in beneath the edge bead or rib of the base and hinge therewith, and its other edge double-folded and adapted to be sprung into engagement with the rib of the base and nip the curtain, substantially as specified.

4. A frame for holding curtains, comprising a base-strip and aseparate strip with one edge out to form pins-rising therefrom and over which the curtain is stretched and one edge thereof turned over to form a hollow bead or rib and the other edge formed as a rib, and a separate concave sheet-metal cover-strip having one edge upturned and adapted to pass in beneath the edge bead or rib of the'base and hinge therewith, and its other edge double-folded and adapted to be sprung into engagement with the rib of the base and nip thecurtain, substantially as specified.

5. A frame for holding curtains, composed of a base and a removable cover, pins in the base, angle-Wires for uniting theparts of the frame at'the angles, the base and cover being initered at the angles, substantially-as set'forth.

Signed'by me this 28th day of December, 1896.

GEORGE F. ROBINSON.
