We find these handblown glass wine bottles – also known as demijohns, carboys or jimmyjohns – at flea markets, restaurants and vineyards throughout Europe. They were once used to hold wine, olive oil or other liquids and range in size from a liter or two to more than 50 liters. Most are from the late 1800's to the mid 1900's, each with slight variations and unique character. Some come with a hand-woven wicker wrapping, a metal basket or a wooden crate to help protect the bottles during transport. Available in a variety of colors: clear, light or dark blue, light or dark green, amber, and brown.
