19th-century Wardian Case used for orchids.

Modeled after the Wardian cases first built for growing ferns in the early 1800s, this terrarium creates a warm, humid environment that encourages plant growth, no matter what the temperature outside. The terrarium is crafted from wrought iron with a pointed arch and cutout trefoil motifs. The glass doors close to help seal in moisture. Really unique indoor piece. Found at Gump’s also at Smith&Hawken. I like it's tall enough for the moth orchid!

The Wardian Case or Fern Case was one of the most important botanic/economic discoveries of the Victorian Age.
