In order that the invention may be clearly understood and readily carried into effect, the same will now be more fully described with the aid of the accompanying drawings in which Figures 1 and 2 are elevation and plan respectively of a candle according to the invention.
Figures 3 and 4 are similar views to Figures l and 2 respectively showing the candle and candle holder therefor. I
Figure 5 is a vertical section taken on line 66 of Figure l the candle holder in this view being slightly modified as hereinafter described. 7
Referring now to the drawings, a is the candle and?) the candle holder. As shown thecandle a is formed with an enlarged lower end adapted to afford three outwardly and radially projecting portions 0 equally spaced apart around its periphery, and the upper end of the candle holder b is provided with a cup-shaped member d which is provided or formed around its upper edgeorrim with three overturned and equally spaced inwardly projecting flanges e, the.
arran ement being such that the candle may projections c of the candle to pass beneath and engage the inward projections e of the cup-shaped member provided on the upper end of the candle holder 6. For the purpose of affording a better grip for the turning movement, the lower end of the candle above the lugs may be corrugated longitudinally. The base of the cup-like member (Z which may be either integral vwith or separate from the candle holder as shown in Figure 5, may be provided with a central aperture or depression at fthrough or into which an extension of the wick g of the candle a may be passed to retain the wick g in an upright position till the candle has been entirely consumed.
1. The combination of a candle holder having a candle receiving socket, three equally spaced lugs projecting inwardly above said socket, a candle having three equally spaced outwardly projecting lugs adapted to pass between and be turned beneath said holder lugs, and wick receiving means in the bot tom wall of the socket to receive and maintain the candle wick in upright posit-ion.
2. The combination of a candle holder having a shallow cup-shaped candle receiving socket, three equally spaced lugs projecting inwardly from the periphery of the said socket, and a candle having three equally spaced lugs projecting outwardly from the lower end of the candle, said lugs adapted to pass between and be turned beneath said holder lugs.
