A. J. HOLMES; OF SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW-YORK, ASSIGNOR TO WELLSA L. ROBBINS, OF SAME PLAGE.
Letters Patent No. 63,898, dated April 16, 1867.
IMPROVED WINDOW CORNICE.
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY GONOERN:
lle it known that I', A. J. HOLMES, of Saratoga Springs, in the county of Saratoga, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in'Cornices for Windows and Rooms; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making part of this specification, and .to the letters ofreference marked thereon, like letters indicating like parts wherever they occur. l I l To enable others skilledrin the art to constructand use my invention, I will proceed to describe it.
My invention consists in a novel manner of constructing ornamental cornices for rooms and windows, as hereinafter more fully explained.l
Figure l is frontend sectional view of a cornice, as put up around the top of a room.
Figure 2, a front elevation of a part of a cornice for a window; andA Figure 3, rearl and sectional view of the same.
In iig. 1, A may'represent the line of the side wall of a room, and B the line of the ceiling overhead. In the angle or corner around the top of the room, at suitable distances, I first secure triangular blocks D, to which the cornice is to be attached 'by screws or nails, as shown in iig. 1. To these blocks I then fasten a continuous strip of wood, as shown'by C-this gure showing both a front view.and also an end view, after having been turned at the corner or angle of the room. This strip C may be either plain on its front face, or it may be recessed longitudinally, as shown in iig. 1. Upon its face, whether plain or recessed, I then secure any ornamental design, consisting of designs on paper, cloth, metal, or any desired substance, as represented by I. In front'ol' this I place a strip of glass, as represented by G, this glass being of suilicient width to entirely cover and protect the ornamental material used This glass is held in place by a strip of moulding, oi' any desired style, as represented by E at the upper side, and by a smaller strip, a, at the bottom. Underneath the strip O I also place another strip of moulding, as shown by H, to make a nice finish at the-lower edge. In this manner a great variety of beautiful styles of cornice muy be made and used, instead of' the plaster cornices new so gene. erully used in buildings.
To construct a cornice on my plan for a window, I proceed in the same general manner, only varying it in shape and size'to iii: itto the window where it is to-be used. In this case it will be made int-o aframe, of which fig. 2 represents a portion in front elevation. This frame will consist'of a front, as then shown, of proper length to reach across the window and project the proper distancey at each side, und having ends constructed on -the same plan, as shown in fig-4, of such length as shall be required to give thc'cornice the proper projection forward. The corners will be formed by mitre or bevel joints, as represented in iig. 3, so as to make a neat finish. The space G, between the upper moulding E and the bottom strip II, will be covered with an ornamental design und then with glass, as above described, the glass being held in' place by the overlapping of the edges ot'lthe mouldings E and H. At the corners, and at other points wherever joints occur in the glass, saidjointsare covered by vertical strips of narrow moulding, as represented by c oilgs. 2 and The window cornice thus constructed maybe secured by hooks and staples, or in any other suitable'mvanner, so as to he removed whenever desired. Suitable material, such as camphor, cedar, or tobacco, may be placed under the ornamental mateial, or behind-the strip C, to protect the material from the ravages of insects. It is obvious that any number and variety of styles of cornice may be thus produced; and the ornamental designs, being thus protected, will remain for un indeniteperiod in a perfect state.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, `is
A cornice, for interior decoration, or for windows, doors7 and similar objects, constructedsubstantially as herein described. V y
A. '.I. HOLMES.
