Ellias Trap Terrarium

The smallest of our Wardian case terrariums, this piece is perfect for the college dorm or apartment in the city. We know that shelf space is at a premium, but we still need some green. Plant a beautiful exotic succulent or pop in a large air plant for an instant contained garden. With a mid century modern vibe and fun deco touches, the Ellias Trap has a whole lot of style packed into a tiny terrarium. 

The Ellias Trap's namesake is John Ellias, a naturalist and member of the Royal Society of London. Although Dr. Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward is credited with the invention of the modern terrarium, John Ellias discussed the use of terrariums 60 years earlier. Don't fret, he went on to discover the Venus Fly Trap.

Lead Head Glass terrariums are handcrafted out of reclaimed glass and wood from deconstructed homes in Detroit and built using traditional stained glass techniques. The terrariums are modeled after 19th century Wardian cases, originally used to transport exotic plants around the globe, and are the ideal environment to raise your own miniature garden or display favorite objects.
