Figure 5 is a perspective view of a group of the units arranged in combination with a flower bowl or similar article; and

Figure 6 is a perspective view of a group of the units arranged in a still different combination, some of the units being disposed in a vertical plane and the others being disposed in a horizontal plane.

Referring to said drawings, the reference numeral 2 designates a candlestick unit having one of its edges of substantially stepped formation and having a candle socket 3 provided in its upper end. The opposite faces of the unit 2 are provided with recesses or oifset areas 5 of an appropriate depth for a purpose which will hereinafter be fully explained.
