IMPROVEMENT IN CANDLESTICKS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 33,788, dated November 26, 1861.

To all whom it may concern.-

, Be it known that we, S. L. MARSDEN, of Westville, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, and S. R. BURRELL, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Portable Candlestick, design ed for arm y or cam p use, public illuminations, 850.; and we do hereby declare that the following is afull, clear, and exact de scription of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making a part of this specification, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of our invention; Fig. 2, a vertical central section of the same; Fig. 3, an inverted elevation of the same.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several figures.

This invention consists in having a metal socket of sufficient dimensions to hold acandle, provided with a spike or screw, or both combined, and arranged, as hereinafter described, so that the sockets may readily be secured to any wood-worksuch, for instance, as the center-pole of atent, the frame of awindow, or any frames arranged specially for them. 1

To enable those skilled in the art to fully understand and construct our invention, we will proceed to describe it.

A represents a metal socket of cylindrical form, and of sufficient dimensions to receive and hold a candle, as shown by the dotted lines in Fig. 2. This socket A is provided with a spike B, or a screw would answer. This spike or screw is fitted in the mold in which the socket A is cast in such a manner that the metal which forms the bottom of the socket will run around the head of the spike or screw and cause the latter to be firmly attached to the socket, the spike or screw projecting from the center of the bottom of the socket A. Another mode of manufacture is to castthe socket and spike in one piece of malleable cast-iron. This latter mode of construction would be rather more expensive, but would perhaps be more desirable for the finer kinds of sockets.

We employ a combination of a spike and screw, as clearly shown in the drawings. This combination is formed by cutting a screw a on the spike a short distance from its end,

so that a smooth point b is obtained of sufficient length to penetrate the wood and hold the socket firm in a generality of cases. In some cases, however, when the wood is not sufficiently dense or firm to hold the socket securely by the penetration of the pointb only, the socket is turned around and the screw a made to enter the wood. Thus by this simple combination of the spike and screw the device is rendered far more valuable than it otherwise would be, as the point .1) may be quickly stuck into the wood and will always be used when sufficient to properly sustain the socket, the slower operation of the screw being only employed when necessary.

Some sockets A may be provided with bent spikes B, as indicated by the dotted lines in Fig. 2. This form of spike may be advantageous in many cases.

For camp purposes the invention will prove to be a great acquisition, as it is portable, and may be instantly stuck into any wood, such as a center-pole of a tent or into a convenient tree or stump. It cannot become casually broken and the cost is trifling.

The device may also be advantageously used for illuminating houses, the spikes being stuck into bars arranged across the windows. When the candle has burned down to the socket A, the portion within the socket may be removed, the socket inverted, and the remaining portion of the candle stuck on the spikeB. (See Fig. 3.) In this case the socket A serves as a base for the spike B.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent as a new and improved article of manufacture, is

A portable candlestick formedof a metal socketA and a spike or screw B, or a spike and screw combined, substantially as described.
