Fortune's Case Terrarium
Fortune's Case is a tribute to Robert Fortune, appointed agent of the Horticultural Society, and the English East India Company in 1843. He was the first horticultural explorer to visit China and East Asia. He successfully used terrariums to transport conifers, small trees, and shrubs to North America and England. Fortune favors the bold. This case features: a triple slope peaked roof design, bold geometric lines, and 120 sq inch planting base.

LeadHead Glass Terrariums are handcrafted out of reclaimed glass and wood from deconstructed homes in Detroit. We model our terrariums after 19th century Wardian Cases, with an updated design. The Wardian case was originally used to transport exotic plants around the globe, and is an ideal environment to raise your own miniature garden in!
LeadHead Glass Terrariums are as unique as the glass and wood it comes from. Each one is made using responsibly sourced materials from hand deconstructed homes. Our commitment is to recycle and reuse our local resources by creating fine American-crafted terrariums.
