Bouvier and Janin have described stationary water-bag models of globular clusters, the defining condition being essentially that the total energy of a particle (per unit mass) is bounded above. In the present paper this demand is supplemented by the condition that the angular momentum of a particle (per unit mass) is bounded below. The resulting model is a hollow spherical shell for which the density vanishes on both inner and outer surfaces, but the particle-velocity vanishes on neither.
