Abstract (en)

[origin: WO02057688A1] The invention relates to a candle holder for styrene candles or candles of other compositions that shorten as they burn and comprising a lower part (1) which includes a candle supporting device (3).The invention is characterised in that the candle holder also includes an upper part (2) which is hinged to the lower part (1) so that it can swing between a first end position in which the upper part (2) and the lower part (1) are in mutual abutment so as to define a closed cavity between said parts, and a second end position in which said upper part (2) is essentially perpendicular and upstanding in relation to the lower part (1), in that the two parts are mutually spring-loaded by means of a spring (4) which strives to move the upper part to its first end position, and in that the candle holder includes a latch mechanism (5, 6) that comprises a bimetal element (7) which, when cold, latches the upper part (2) in said second end position and when warm or hot releases the latch so that the upper part (2) will move to its first end position under the influence of said spring.
