Intaglios are small engraved or carved images or designs that are created on a flat surface such as stone, metal, or glass. They are often used for decorative or artistic purposes, and can be found in various forms and materials.
In the context of being placed on iron stakes and placed in a glass cloche, intaglios may refer to small metal objects that have been engraved or carved with intricate designs or symbols. These objects are then mounted on iron stakes or rods, which are then placed inside a glass cloche, or bell jar.
The purpose of this display may vary, but it is often used for decorative or artistic purposes. The iron stakes may be arranged in a particular pattern or shape, and the intaglios may be arranged in a way that highlights their individual designs or patterns.
The glass cloche serves to protect the intaglios from dust, debris, and other environmental factors, while also allowing them to be easily viewed from all angles. The overall effect is a striking and visually interesting display that can be used to enhance the aesthetic of a room or space.
