Wardian Cases

Terrariums are generally credited with being invented by a man named Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward. He invented them during the Victorian era and created a style of glass case with a metal frame that was very popular during the era. These terrariums were called "Wardian Cases" after Ward. You can learn more about him and the history of the terrarium on my page here "The History of the Terrarium" The picture shown here is a Victorian Wardian Case. I have on this page two sizes of terrariums Table Top and Floor Model.

 

A Wardian Case or Terrarium

The traditional style of wardian case is made much like a stained glass window with metal around the edges holding sheets of glass together. But in the wardian case the glass is clear to allow sunlight to pass through.
