Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4926297.

A cylindrical glass globe is supported by an annular rigid plastic coupling member which seats and locks onto the top portion of a tubular rigid plastic housing. A fuel source in the form of a container of liquid fuel mounted on a bottom adaptor or a candle supported within a rigid casing by a compression spring, is supported within the housing by a rigid plastic base removably secured to the bottom of the housing. The globe and coupling member are inverted as a unit after being removed from the housing, and the globe is inserted into the housing around the fuel source for storage and protection of the globe. A bail-type handle connects a pair of strips slidably supported by the housing.
