M. REl-SERT May 24, 1927.

ORNAMENT Filed July 24, l926 INVENTOR Rez'sert,

Patented May 24, 1927.




Application filed July 24, 1926. Serial No. 124,601.

The object of my invention is the production of candelabrum for the decoration of birthday cakes, Christmas trees and the like which may be manufactured easily and inexpensively and at the same time be of decorative appearance and easy to apply.

Fig. 1 shows a cross section of one candle holder before it has been formed into one branch of the complete candelabrum.

Fig. 2 shows one embodiment of my device when completed.

Referring to Fig. 1 the ornamental cup 1, here shown in the form of a conventionalized rosebud, may be made of sugar, plaster of Paris or other plastic material and is wrapped or molded in or about the upper end of a stem 2 which may be made ofwire or narrow strips of sheet metal. The upper end of this stem terminates in a spiral 8 which is within the cup and constitutes the candle holder proper. This spiral is preferably loosely wound.

In Fig. 2 it will be seen that the stems 2 of the various cups are bent appropriately at points t and 5 so that when twisted, soldered, sleeved, or otherwise sec'ured together at 6 an artistictype of holder for several candles will result.

The central stem 7 may be straight and a number of L-shaped members secured to it.

I do not wish to limit myself to this particular design of cup nor to'any specific number of cups nor to any particular means of securing the stems of said cups together.

I claim 1. A miniature candelabrum comprising L-shaped wires having vertical stems twisted together and adapted to form a support to be inserted in a cake or the like and each wire having an offset portion terminating 40 in a candle-receiving socket integral therewith at. its upper end.

2. A miniature candelabrum adapted to be inserted in a cake and comprising at least three L-shaped wires, each having a vertical stem at its lower end and an offset candlereceiving socket at its upper end, a central wire terminating in a candle receiving socket integral therewith, and means for securing said central wire and said stems to- 5 gether.

3. A miniature candelabrum comprising L-shaped wires having vertical stems secured together and adapted to be inserted in a cake, each wire terminating in a helix forming a candle-receiving socket at its upper end and an ornamental cup molded about each socket. i
