Description

F 21, 1956 G. FERLEGER 2,73 285 ORNAMENTAL CANDLE Filed April 27, 1955 INWWHR. GEORGE FERLEGER ATTORNEY United States Patent onNAMENrAL CANDLE George Ferleger, Philadelphia, Pa., assignor to Penn Wax Works, Inc., Philadelphia, Pa., a corporation or Pennsylvania Application April 27, 1955, Serial No. 594,177

1 (Ilaim. (Cl. 67-21) My invention relates to a candle, and more particularly relates to an ornamental casing and candle which is attractive to view when the candle is lit or not lit, and wherein the casing may simulate lanterns, figures, pumpkins, or the like.

Heretofore, candles have been set within candelabra and other supporting structures in order to hold the candlestick erect and to prevent adjacent inflammable material from igniting. In addition, these supporting devices pro vided an attractive appearance to set off the candle itself.

It is an object of my invention to construct an attractive, self-contained, and ornamental candle which provides its own blended supporting structure, simulating a lantern, pumpkin, figurine, or the like, and which will burn safely when lit.

Another object of my invention is to construct an ornamental candle having an integrally formed burning element which will illuminate the candle from within and provide a safe, external, lantern-like appearance.

Another object of my invention is to provide an ornamental candle having an outer translucent wax shell encasing an internal burning element and integrally blended thereto.

Another object of my invention is to provide an ornamental candle having a replaceable burning element.

Other objects of my invention are to provide an improved device of the character described, which is easily and economically produced, that is sturdy in construction, and which is highly effective in operation.

With these and related objects in view, my invention consists of the details of construction and combination of parts, as will be more fully understood from the following description, when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of an ornamental candle embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 is a perspective view and partly in section showing the internal construction of the ornamental candle.

Fig. 3 is a cutaway perspective view of the ornamental candle after it has burned through its exterior shell and interiorly illuminating the shell.

Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken along lines 4-4 of Fig. 1.

Referring now in greater detail to the drawing, in which similar reference characters refer to similar parts, I show an ornamental candle comprising a burning elemeat, generally designated as A, mounted within a lantern-like shell, generally designated as B.

The burning element A is a conventional stick candle having a wick 10 immersed in a fuel stick 12 of consumable wax material. The lantern-like shell B is also of a wax material and comprises a plurality of sides 14 integrally joined to a base 16 and a sloping roof 18. Each side 14 has a translucent central window 20 surrounded by an opaque frame 21 which is heavier in gauge than the window.

The candlestick A is fused upright upon the base 16 and extends vertically through the shell B to the apex of the roof 18. A canopy 22, which is of the same material as the shell B, envelops and blends With the top of the stock 12 and is faired with the apex of the roof, leaving only the wick 10 of the burning element exposed.

The shell B including the canopy 22 is wax of a higher melting point than the burning element A, but will melt at that portion which is in direct contact with the flame. However, the shell material has a higher ignition point than the temperature of the burning candlestick A, and, therefore, the shell itself will not catch fire upon contact with the candlestick flame.

Upon igniting the projecting wick 10, the flame will be fed by the fuel, provided by the wax stick 12. The canopy 22 and its immediate adjacent area of the roof 18 melts away, leaving an open chimney 24 at the center of the roof, thereby permitting the burning candlestick A to communicate with the combustion supporting atmosphere as the flame extends below the roof. The flame burning Within the shell B illuminates the translucent windows 20 to present an attractive exterior appearance in the nature of a lantern. The candlestick A will burn until its fuel is entirely consumed and the shell will remain intact ex cept for its chimney. The shell thereby may be adapted for repeated use over a long period of time merely by replacing the candlestick.

Although my invention has been described in c0nsiderable detail, such description is intended as being illustrative rather than limiting, as the invention may be variously embodied, and the scope of the invention is to be determined as claimed.

I claim as my invention:

An integrally formed ornamental candle comprising a combustible wax stick candle and a decorative wax translucent shell having a hollow chamber therein, said shell having a floor, a roof, and walls being of a wax material of a lesser degree of meltability than said combustible wax stick candle, said stick candle being spaced from said Walls and projecting from said floor through said hollow chamber to said roof, a wick in said stick candle extending externally of said roof, said roof surrounding and blending with said stick candle and being of a wax material which will melt with the melting of said stick candle.
