DE 3403604 A1
The candle stub (2) of a candle, consisting of wax, stearin or the like, is accommodated in a cup (3). A metal pipe (4) connected to the bottom of the cup (3) has a longitudinal slit (6). Arranged in the interior space (7) of the pipe is an absorbent body (8) which holds the wick (1) which projects outwards at the top. The candle flame burns uniformly at the upper end of the pipe (4) throughout the burning life of the candle. The heat generated by the candle flame is conducted downwards via the metal pipe (4) and liquifies the material of the candle stub, so that it can be sucked upwards to the wick (1) by the absorbent body (8). <IMAGE>
