Large Vintage Green Italian Demijohn
LARGE VINTAGE GREEN ITALIAN DEMIJOHN
This vintage green bottle vase, looks great and creatively dramatic on any stylish setting. These glass carboys were originally from Italy and they really are huge. They were originally used daily to carry wine. Often these Carboys were stored in a huge metal crate or wrapped in a wicket basket to carry. Today we can either use them for a floral arrangement at the side of the console table or a creative display on the floor on the corner of a room. We have 4 in stock and all are slightly different sizes and shades of greens and turquoises. All beautiful and precious.
These ultimate decorative items are about 100 years old.
The word Carboy is translated to “big jug”. They are called Carboy is the USA. In Europe these wonderful green bottles are often known as Demijohn's too, pronounced 'Dame Jeanne'. A word meaning large bottle glass vessel with a huge body and skinny neck, to carry liquids.
