cloche collections.

cloche-collection

i’ve been big into cloches lately — sometimes called bell jars. i love the unexpected little collections you can keep underneath them – like specimens to be inspected of our most beloved treasures. those sometimes strange little things we pick up in our travels and aren’t quite sure what to do with. i found this little vintage flip calendar at the perish trust and thought it might look sweet under a cloche — an interesting way for me to keep track of what day it is. same with the london stamp — a gentle reminder to myself that i need to get back there, and soon. a weird architectural finial? sure, why not. a few tiny broken branches, yep, i’ll keep them under a cloche, too. what would you keep under yours? here’s a few more ideas to inspire. you.

you can find vintage ones in all shapes in sizes at flea markets, etsy and ebay, or new ones at places like z gallerie, this cool sanctus cloche with a rope handle from anthropologie, or cost plus world market.

  2. I have to admit, I didn’t know the word cloche until I started watching Chopped. I’ve been collecting coral and we have a giant piece under a cloche on our coffee table. The ocean under glass…that works for me.

    You should check out Front Cafe in Potrero Hill – they display their pastries under uniquely shaped cloches too!

  4. I love the cloche too. My collection of them has yet to be filled, but I am slowly finding great things to display in them.
    Great post!

    I have been into these clotches since I saw them on Emily Henderson’s desk in one of her posts where she had a little miniature doll chair under it. It was just perfect and I now just can’t get enough of them. All of these images are inspiring.

    What a lovely collection! Now I have to figure out where to get these beauties in Germany.

    I love the Victorian and “cabinet of curiosities” feel about a cloche. I didn’t know they sold them at World Market; thanks for letting us know!

  9. Love these! I saw several of these available at Paxton Gate.

    I have so many lovely little trinkets I’ve collected over the years and have been dreaming of displaying them in a similar manner. It’s amazing how they can elevate a space…
