Object of Desire: Victorian Glass Garden Cloches

October 15, 2018

Glass garden cloches are tiny portable greenhouses you can plop atop any plant that may need extra warmth to weather the coming winter.

Popular in England since the Victorian era, metal-framed garden cloches also add a sculptural element to the garden. We’re currently admiring lidded glass cloches on offer from UK garden shop Crocus.

N.B.: This is not a new obsession with us. See The Beauty of the Garden Cloche for more we’ve admired.

A Victorian Lidded Bronze Lantern Cloche is about \19 inches in diameter and about \20.5 inches high; £89.99 at Crocus.

“This cloche is heavy, durable and built to last, with a removable lid for easy ventilation,” notes the retailer.

A brass and glass Seedling Cloche has an elongated frame that is &#8\2\20;ideal for placing over seedling rows to get them off to good start,&#8\2\2\1; notes retailer Crocus; £99.99.
