We can't help but think that Captain Nemo would have this pair of Octopus Glass Cloches accenting the study of his submarine. An unusual addition to any décor, each of these two glass cloches is topped with a pewter octopus that serves as a handle. Place one over a potted plant or any decorative treasure. Or use one of these glass cloches to house a terrarium, capturing life-sustaining moisture for the plants within. Even on their own, these octopus-topped glass domes will draw the attention of your guests. The cephalopods (the zoological classification of the octopus) atop these crystal-clear glass domes are highly detailed and cast in pewter.
The French developed the glass cloche or bell jar for use outdoors as a cover to protect early garden plants from cold and frost and indoors to encourage the growth of outdoor plants inside. The glass dome allows for easy viewing and for sunlight to pass through to the plants. It also traps moisture through evaporation and condensation, maintaining a moist, growth-friendly eco-system.
