ing the face piece to the glass seating portion
so that these members may be permanently con
nected or fastened together.
A still further object is to provide a novel
20 combination of sash members including a rigid
face piece or moulding adapted to seat against
one face of the glass and a resilient and ad
justable insert or member adapted to seat against
the other face of the pane. By means of this
25 resilient member, the novel setting permits a
perfect mitre at the corners or meeting edges
as this member adjusts itself to retain adjacent
panes of glass with an equal pressure through
out the setting, even though the panes may vary
30 in thickness. This further permits a perfect
alignment of the adjoining sash members re
gardless of the angle at which they may be
mounted.
Further objects are to provide a construction
35 of maximum simplicity, ei?ciency, economy and
ease of assembly and operation, and such further
objects, advantages and capabilities as will later
more fully appear and are inherently possessed
thereby.

The invention further resides in the construc
tion, combination and arrangement of parts illus
trated in the accompanying drawing, and while
I have shown therein a preferred embodiment, it
is to be understood that the same is suscepti
45 ble of modi?cation and change, and compre~
hends other details, arrangements of parts, fea
tures and constructions without departing from
the spirit of the invention.

tain them in adjusted position.
The pane of glass 6 is adapted to be mounted
on the inner sash member or pane seating sec
tion 3 in a position to seat against a glass abut
ting ?ange ‘I provided on the face piece or outer 20
sash member 2. This sash member is also pro;
vided with an angularly arranged or sloping face
8 terminating in a flange 9 adapted to seat upon
a suitable sheathing l6 covering a portion of the
sill or base II and facing‘ [2. The outer sash 25
member or moulding is also provided with a leg
I 3 forming an upwardly facing channel or groove
[4 for the reception of an interlocking end 15
of the bolt or looking member 5. In order to
permit proper drainage of any condensate which 30 7
might collect in the setting and for proper ven
tilation, the ?ange 9 is provided with suitably
spaced openings or vents it open to the exterior.
The inner sash member or pane seating section
3 has its lower edge I‘! seating upon the sill ll 35
and its upper edge It formed to provide an arm
ate portion or recess I9 to receive and retain the
U-shaped resilient member 4, the latter being
bent over to form a groove or recess 20 adapted
to seat over and anchor onto» the ?ange 2| of 40
the arcuate portion. It will be readily apparent
that this resilient member s will adjust itself and
apply a uniform gripping pressure throughout its
extent, and because of its resiliency and adjust
ability, it will align- adjacent or adjoining panes 45
of glass with the face piece or moulding 2, even
though these panes vary in thickness. This in
ner sash member is further formed with a ledge
or base 22 provided adjacent its inner end with
a leg or projection 23 adapted to seat upon the 50
sheathing m and intermediate the upstanding
?ange 24 on the sheathing and the ?ange 25
forming one side of the channel or groove [4 in
the outer sash member or moulding.
The inner sash member or pane seating section 55

3 is provided‘with an opening in its rear face
through which is inserted the locking bolt or wire
cam 5, while the leg or projection 23 is provided
with an arcuate slot ‘26 for receiving the inner
end of this locking bolt. After the bolt is inserted
into the opening and slot, the material in the
portion 21 of this projection 23 is deformed or
bent upwardly as in Fig. 6, to retain the bolt in
an aligned position in which it is mounted for
10 turning or pivotal movement upon rotation of
the outer end 28.
,
In the assembly of the store front construction
or glass setting, the inner-sash member or pane
seating section 3 is ?rst mounted upon the
15 sheathing and sill with the leg or projection 23
abutting the ?ange 24 on the sheathing. This
sash member is then anchored to the sill by
means of screws or the like 29. The glass 6 is
then set upon leather strips or blocks 30 suitably
spaced along and mounted on the inner sash
member. Next the outer sash member or mould
ing 2 is moved into a position with the ?ange 25
seating against the projection or leg 23. This is
accomplished by positioning the bolt so that the
25 outer end 28 projects upwardly and the interlock
ing end I5 is moved to a position above and par
allel to the ?ange 25. Then the bolt is rotated to
the position shown in Figs. 2, 3 and'4, whereby
to interlock the inner and outer sash members,
30 and the 'glass if not already so positioned, is
moved into contacting or abutting engagement
with the ?ange 1 of the moulding or face piece.
Next the U-shaped resilient member 4is snapped
over the ?ange 2| and into the space between
35 the glass and arcuate portion l9 and the setting
is complete. , If desired, a removable strip or the
like 3| may be provided to protect the bolt and
prevent accidental turning thereof to release the
and a member rotatably mounted in the seating
section and having a bent end adapted to be re
ceived in a portion of the moulding and locked
thereagainst to retain the moulding and the pane
seating section in predetermined position whereby
to provide a rigid setting for a pane of glass.
3. In a setting for a store front, the combina
tion of a pane seating section adapted to be
mounted upon a sill or other support, a moulding
adapted-to provide a face piece for the setting
and a bar member rotatably mounted in the seat
ing section and each end thereof bent at an angle
to the body of the bar and at an angle to each
other, one of the ends being adapted to engage '
the pane seating section and the other the mould
15
ing to rigidly interlock them against accidental
separation.

4. In a setting for a store front, the combina-.
tion of a pane seating section adapted to be
mounted upon a sill or other support, a moulding 20
adapted to provide a face piece for the setting
and a member rotatably mounted in the seating
section and comprising a rod-like member having
its opposite ends bent outwardly to provide look
ing projections, one of which is adapted to engage
the pane seating section and the other the mould
ing to connect them to form a rigid setting.
5. In a store front construction, the combina
tion of a pane seating section adapted to be
mounted upon a sill or other support and having
30
a part spaced from the rear .face of a pane of
glass, a moulding having a part adapted to en
gage the pane, a locking member having a pro
jection at each end thereof adapted to engage a
portion of the seating section and moulding for 35
interlocking them to provide a unit assembly, and
a resilient member adapted to be inserted inter
mediate the rear face of the pane and the part ‘

the resilient member retains the glass with a uni- 7 and an inner sash member, means for rigidly

eliminating the danger of cracking or splitting.
Having thus disclosed the invention,
I claim:
'
'
r
1. In a store front construction, an inner and
an outer sash member, providing a setting for a
pane of glass, and a locking member intercon
necting the sash members to maintain them in
?xed position and comprising a pivotally mounted
bar having its opposite ends bent at an angle to
the body of the bar and at an angle to each other
whereby to engage a portion of the sash members
to lock‘ these members together upon rotation of
the bar and prevent their accidental separation or
displacement.
V 2. In a setting for a Store front, the combina
tion of a pane seating section adapted to be
mounted upon a sill or other support, a moulding
adapted to provide a face piece for the setting
ing angular extensions at its opposite ends, said
extensions being at an angle to each other.
'7. In a store front construction, an outer sash
member having an upstanding ?ange, an inner 5 (l
sash member having an opening therein,‘ a bar
adapted to rigidly connect said members and ex
tending through said opening and being rotatable
therein, the ends of said bar being formed at
right angles to the body thereof.‘ and at right
angles to each other, said members being so con
structed and arranged that when a pane of glass
is supported therebetween they may be locked to
gether by su?icient rotation of the bar which
causes the ends thereof to abut the part sur 60
rounding the opening in the inner member and
the ?ange on the outer member.
