CORPORATION OF NEW YORK NIGHT-LIGHT AND VOTIVE-LIGHT HOLDERS Application filed June 2,
This invention relates generally to a night or votive light, and has more particular reference to a novel bracket for supporting the same.
The invention has for an object the pro vision of a device of the class mentioned which is of simple durable construction, desirable and efficient in action, and which can be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.
The invention proposes the use of an internal threaded member fixedly secured to the bottom side of a support bracket arranged for holding a votive light and a covering glass chimney therefor. This bracket is intended for engagement upon a stand having at its top a projecting external threaded member so that the said internal threaded member may be screwed thereon. This screwing arrangement provides a positive and safe method connecting the specified parts.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure Fig. 1 is a perspective View of a bracket constructed according to this invention.
Fig. 2 is a central vertical sectional view thereof.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a modified form of bracket constructed according to the same invention.
Fig. 4 is a central vertical sectional view thereof. I
Fig. 5 is a plan view thereof.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary central vertical sectional view of a modified form of the device.
Fig. 7 is a side elevational view of another modified form of the device.
Fig. 8 is a fragmentary central vertical sectional view thereof.
Fig. 9 is a side elevational view of another modified form of the device.
The reference numeral 10 indicates generally the top rolled edge of a night or votive 1928. Serial No. 282,455.
light supporting bracket having a chimney glass supporting shelf 11, a light supporting shelf 12, and a base'13. This bracket is made of sheet metal, and preferably spun in shape, thus being of circular shape in horizontal cross-section. In Fig. 2, the dot-dash lines 14 indicate a glass chimney resting on the shelf 11, and dot-dash lines 15 indicate a light device resting on vthe shelf 12.
The base 13 is formed with a central aperture 16 and the opening of an internal threaded member 17 is aligned therewith. The member 17 is positioned on the lower side of thebase 13 and thus secured by solder 18. For securing the bracket to a base having an external threaded top, the bracket is screwed onto this top so that the member 17 engages therewith. V I
In Figs. 3 and 4 a modified form of bracket is illustrated which is highly ornamental. It consists of a base 19 having integral fancy prongs bent for presenting a light support shelf 20 and a glass chimney support shelf 21. The base is formed with an aperture 22, and an internal threaded member 23 is socured to the base by solder 24, so as to align with the aperture 22. v
The modification illustrated in 6 dis-- closes a bracket with a base 25, having an integral threaded member 26 projecting downwards from its bottom and providing both internal threads 27 and external threads In Figs. 7 and 8, the bracket illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2 has been shown, but the base 13 has several lugs 29 stamped therefrom and bent for providing inwardly projecting ends 30 and curved sides 31. The threaded member 17 is formed with recesses 32 for receiving the inwardly directed ends 30 and a wire 33 is engaged around the outside of member 17 and around the curved sides 31 of the lugs, and has its ends twisted together for securely holding lug ends engaged in the member 17, as a means for holding the threaded member fixedly in place.
In Fig. 9, the supporting bracket shown comprises a top rolled edge 10, a chimney support shelf 11, a light support shelf 12, and a candle support cup 35 which is slightly tapered. A plurality of apertures 36 are formed in the shelf 11 for providing air into the chimney which may rest upon the support shelf. When a night or votive light is not engaged on the shelf 12 then a candle may be engaged in the candle support 35. The bottom of the cup 35 is formed with an aperture 16, and a threaded member 17 is attached to the bottom of the cup and aligned with this aperture.
While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that I 'do not limit myself to the precise construction :herein disclosed as changes and modifications may be made within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
Havingthus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire tosecure by United States Letters Patent is 1. Adevice of the class described, comprising a bracketadapted for supporting a night or votive light and a shield chimney, and having a base with several lugs struck downward therefrom, a threaded member positioned against the bottom side of the base, and formed with :side recesses, and the said lugs having inturned ends engaging these recesses and having curved sides, and a wire positioned around the threaded member and around the curved sides, and secured in place by twisting its ends for holding the lugs in engagement with the threaded member.
2. A device of the class described, comprising a bracket adapted for supporting a night or votive light and a shield chimney, and having a base with several lugs struck down- I ward therefrom, a threaded member positioned against the bottom side of the base, and formed with side recesses, and the said lugs having int-urned ends engaging these recesses, and means for holding the lugs in engagement with the threaded member.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature.
