industrial glass cloches
I’ve had a recent fascination with the use of cloches to encapsulate and feature interesting objects under glass. Being my frugal self I knew that if I kept an eye out I’d come across something in a thrift shop to get the look for less than regular retail or an antique option.
For $5 for the larger and $3 for the smaller and filled with found items including birch bark, pine cones, and rocks and pebbles, and a sweet little bird from the dollar store, I think I knocked off the Restoration Hardware 1920s inspired alternative with a homey yet curious result.
Placed on my coffee table, tying this setting of cloches and tealights together is another thrifty find – a vintage Cylinda Line tray. Designed by Arne Jacobson in the late 1960s, it is available in new production at Design Within Reach for $150, but I was lucky enough to find it at a church rummage sale for $10.
