Abstract

See full text

A venting plate for an apothecary jar candle is disclosed, which includes a ceramic venting chassis and decorative three dimensional ornamentation bonded to the chassis. The venting plate with its decorative three dimensional ornamentation can remain atop an apothecary jar candle while burning. The ornamentation is composed of molded poly resin reliefs of various genre and styles. The unique venting chassis provides sufficient thermal insulation to protect the reliefs and provides sufficient laminar air flow within an apothecary jar candle to improve the combustion efficiency and reduce candle smoke. In one embodiment of the venting plate, the ceramic chassis has a flat plate , a cylindrical skirt which extends from the bottom of the flat top and a plurality of mounting feet, which support the chassis atop a jar candle. The mounting feet space the plate above the candle brim to permit the flow of inlet air underneath the venting plate between the plate top and the brim of the candle vessel. The annular baffle extends downward into the mouth of the vessel around the exhaust vent, which redirects the inlet air flow, which enters the candle horizontally from underneath the venting plate, downward along the vessel sidewall.
