Product Description
Huge example of an antique demijohn in blown green glass with flat bottom and original two handled wicker carrying basket. The basket is two pieces, base and lid, with a wooden bottom and reinforced with wire for strength. A layer of raffia on the inside protects the bottom and sides of the bottle which has air bubbles evident throughout the thick glass. The base of the basket has some light mildew stains that should disappear with a thorough cleaning. Origin is most likely France or Italy, early Twentieth Century.
