2 Claims.

This invention relates to illuminated decorative devices.

5 rative device which shall comprise comparatively few and simple parts, be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, attractive in appearance and prac tical and efficient to a high degree.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements,

and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claims.

In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible embodiments of this invention,

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of a wall provided with a pair of windows and illustrating the manner of use of the illuminated device embodying the invention;

Fig. 2 is a side elevational, fragmentary view or the device embodying in cross-section;

the invention, with parts Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 3-4 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 4 is a wiring diagram of my improved device.

Referring now in detail to the drawing, I designates a device embodying the invention, which is seen to comprise two substantially similar members II and I2. The member tom member or board II comprises a bot- I3 having a plurality of cylindrical, spaced, parallel openings M in the upper surface thereof. made of wood or any material.

Overlying said board Said member I3 may be other suitable insulating I3 is a second board or member I5 formed with a slot or groove I6 in the undersurf ace thereof. The board I5 may further be provided with a plurality of through cylindrical l4 and communicating openings I1 aligned with the openings with the slot I6.

Said

board I5 may be attached to the board I3 by screws, nails or in any other suitable manner.

Extending through each pair ings I4 and ll of aligned openis a cylindrical candle-simulating a pair of diametrically IS, the upper ends of groove I6. member I8 is an ordinary screw disposed vertical notches which register with the Mounted within the upper end of each shell 20 to which there may be screwed a miniature electric lamp The member I2 is substantially similar'to the member I I and comprises a bottom board I311. to which is attached a superimposed top board I5a.- 5 The board i311. is likewise formed with spaced, vertical, cylindrical openings Ida and the board I2 is formed with openings Ila aligned with the openings Ida. Mounted within each pair of aligned openings Ida, Ila. is a candle simulat- 0 ing member I8 to the upper end of which is attached a lamp base receiving screw shell 29, and the bottom end of which is formed with vertical, diametrically disposed aligned notches I 9.

As illustrated in the drawing, the members II and i2 are each provided with four candle simulating'member I8, although each may be provided with any suitable number of said members. The sockets 2d at the upper ends of the members I8 are wired in series circuit. The wiring passes through the notches I9 into and through the groove I6. Preferably considerable length of wire is provided between the members II and I2 so that said members may be placed on spaced windows, as illustrated for example, in Fig. 1 of the drawing.

In Fig. 4 is shown a wiring diagram for the members II and I2. It will be noted that the groove I6a. in the undersurface of the member I501. is open at both ends, the free ends of the wires passing through said groove and being attached to a plug 30, or any other suitable electrical attachment fitting. It will now be understood that the members II and I2 are movable with respect to one another and may be placed in various positions in a room. All of the lamps are connected in the same series circuitand are supplied with electrical power by use of a single attachment plug. The ends of the grooves may be closed by bushings receiving the wiring therethrough. The wiring interconnecting the members I I and I2 is of course, flexible and said members may therefore be arranged in a variety of positions.

7 It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing, is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:-

1. An illuminating ornamental device comprising a pair of separate members movable independently of one another and each comprising a flat board, and a second fiat board superimposed and attached to said first board, said second board being formed with a groove on the undersurface thereof and with a plurality of through openings said first board being formed with a plurality of openings with the top surface thereof aligned with said first openings, candle simulating members mounted on said members and having the lower ends thereof extending within said pairs of aligned openings, screw shells mounted on the upper ends of said candle simulating members, and all of said sockets being interconnected by wiring in a single series circuit, said wiring interconnecting said members and extending within said grooves, and the end wires of said circuit extending from one of said members and being connected to a single attachment plug for supplying electric power to said sockets.

2. An illuminating ornamental device comprising a pair of separate members movable independently of one another and each comprising a plate, and a second plate superimposed and attached to said first plate, one of said plates being formed with a groove on the surface thereof disposed against the other plate, said second plate having a plurality of through openings, said first plate being formed with a plurality of openings in the top surface thereof aligned with said first openings, candle simulating elements mounted on said members and having the lower ends thereof extending within said pairs of aligned openings, screw shells mounted on the upper ends of said candle simulating elements, and all of said sockets being interconnected by wiring in a single series circuit, said wiring interconnecting said members, and extending within said groove, and the end wires of said circuit extending from one of said members and being connected to a single at tachment plug for supplying electric power to said sockets.
