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. 40 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. In the drawing: 50 Fig.'1 is a. perspective view of the novel set ting applied to the corner of a store front.

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 2 1 ' ' ‘ 2,138,586 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 ‘ in the drawing, it will be readily appreciated that the novel combination provides a quick and posi on the pane seating section and apply a uniform yielding pressure against the rear of the glass to 40 hold and retain the pane in proper adjusted posi tion at all times and throughout the extent of the tive setting for a pane of glass.
