whereby a current of air is caused automati- 5 cally to circulate therethrough when in use. My invention is designed to provide an improved form of lantern body in which the current of air circulating therethrough will According to this invention the sides and/or back and front of the lantern body which are bent longitudinally in opposite direct-ions, one end upwards, and the other downwards, the two bent ends being connected by a middle horizontal part. Below the optical centre of the lamp the outer parts ofthe louvres are bentdownwards, and the inner parts are bent upwards. Above the optical centre this arrangement is reversed,

the outer parts being bent upwards whilst.

V the inner parts are bent downwards. By this the lantern body is automatically caused as slats are so spaced apart thatthe bent parts overlap so as to prevent escape of the light from the inside of the lantern body to the outside. V

The two louvre slats adjacent the horizontal plane of the optical centre where the reversal of the louvres occurs, have their' inner parts bent at right angles to said plane.

My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing which shows a rear view of a lantern body constructed in accordance with my invention With the lamp in position and the back removed.

As shown the sides-of the lantern body are constructed of thin slats I mounted on cor-V ner posts 2. Below the optical centre of the lamp, the slats 1 have their outer longitudinal parts 3 bent downwards and their inner longitudinal parts 4 bent upwards. Above the optical centre the slats have their inner lon- .gitudinal parts 4 bent downwards and the outer longitudinal parts 3 bent upwards. The two slats which are adjacent each other where the reversal of the slats takes place x qeole tei aat fmet al y lci l through the lantern. body as soon as theair c -warm .of wh ch a ben leewarrangement a circulation of cold air through hiata h mr r .rer fl a t ter isallyite- Ward an Over ap n e h. 9. to pr a ieh ra e li rt thl it d he new body M v This arrangement ensnresihata current ,55
