The front and top of the form shown in FIGS. 5 and 6 are similar to the same portions of FIGS. 2 and 4, respectively.

The characteristic features of my new design reside in the making of the housing generally in the form of a predominant part of a sphere, the making of the front face of the housing generally flat and slanted rearwardly and upwardly at a small angle relatively to the vertical, the making of the flat front face of the housing with a diameter which substantially exceeds the radius of the spherical portion of the housing, the provision of a visible line generally in the form of a great circle of the spherical portion of the housing, such line lying in a plane which is inclined upwardly and rearwardly at generally a 45 angle, and the use of a transparent plate or sheet which occupies substantially the full area of the front plane surface of the housing.
