displays under glass

I thought I would expand on yesterday's post on vintage photo displays and look at glass cloches and all the lovely things we can display in them.

Glass cloches originated in France and were originally used to protect garden plants from cold and frost. Kind of like a mini greenhouse. Today these beauties are a perfect way to showcase everything from antique pretties to nature collections.

I am always on the lookout for vintage cloches, and after seeing these fabulous displays I am going to be even more diligent in my search.
