Collection of 3 Green Glass French Demijohn Bottles
Reference #: 0620-M75B

A collection of three olive colored glass demijohn bottles, used from the late 17th Century through the 19th Century to carry wine and spirits. Handblown, each has their own unique characteristics, from the tilt of the gooseneck to the trapped air bubbles which vary in size and impart eye catching interest. They often, though not always, have the liter volume on the bottom, as seen in image #7. There are traces of oxidation from the former contents of each bottle, which also add interest. The bottles have rough edges at the mouth.

Measurements below are for the largest bottle.
