    Default Unusual barn cloche frame

    Can anyone offer any information about this unusual 3 sided barn cloche frame?

    Decades ago my late father was given this unusual barn cloche frame along with some other conventional Chase type. He was given several but I remember him saying that they were no good, he never used them and threw away all but this one.

    I have always been puzzled by this frame - it is obviously a cloche frame of some kind but how would it assemble? I tried an experiment using Chase cloche eaves wires and found I could make a cloche using three Chase type 2' x 1' glass panes. It holds together and can be lifted gently using the wires. Could this be how the frame was supposed to be assembled?

    The first photo shows the unusual 3 sided frame alongside a standard large Chase frame for comparison. I selected dirty glass panes so they would show on the photo.

    Hi John.
    There's an old thread at https://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gr...hes_58970.html with lots of links. Don't know whether any of them would help you?
