Description

A rare find these days, a clear glass French melon cloche, found in near perfect, to say the least, antique, condition.
One of thousands of cloches used in French gardens from the 16th century onwards, but in mass usage from the 1800hundreds.
Used to protect early crops, seedlings and often melons, from inclement weather and frost.
Called a bell cloche for it's shape and the bell sound it makes when tapped..gently...
This rare survivor was made by a skilled glass blower and shows air bubbles and imperfections a handmade piece of glass usually has.
The round ball handle normally found on the apex of the cloche is unfortunately missing,. but it is a clean break, no damage to the bell cloche itself.
