1. a bell-shaped glass jar used to cover delicate plants.
2. a close fitting, bell-shaped hat for women.
So ... what are all the other things we call a cloche?
You be the judge ... lots of pictures ...
I do have one bell-shaped glass cloche that houses a real bird nest on a stack of grapevine.
Now this IS a cloche.
These small cheese domes make really nice cloche. I placed them on small vintage enamel plates and displayed my miniature antique stone fruit.

re-purposed to a cloche HERE
Chicken wire cloche ...
I purchased these and they were pretty expensive, about $15.00 each plus shipping. The wire openings are smaller and items do not show up very well in them.
I covered a metal frame from the Thrift store with chicken wire ... added a finial and called it
Old metal bird cages make a wonderful display cloche.
One sitting on a glass cake pedestal plate shows off the display really nice and the other on a silver plated cake plate.
Both are brass HENDRIX cages but one has a screen around the bottom.
wooden dowel stick bird house with a metal lantern inside that serves as a night light.
"Apartment for rent" birdcage ... on the front porch ...I believe it is already rented.
Split bamboo ... not for birds ...
A large glass and metal house display/cloche that I bought in 2009 to sell on eBay ... never listed and never displayed.
Cost $15.oo for the frame and $20.00 to have the glass pieces cut. Must find a perfect place to use this.

Hope you enjoyed all my "cloche" displays
or "not a cloche" dome displays !!
