Antique Demijohn Bottles


A demijohn is a very large bottle, sometimes up to 10 gallons in capacity. Most were handblown and some have pontiled bottoms. They were used as containers to hold wine, molasses, and other liquids. Common colors were olive green and aqua, while amber is rarer and cobalt blue the rarest color for demijohns.
