Antique wicker wrapped demijohn - large antique bottle
Antique wicker wrapped demijohn bottle, large multiple gallon size. Aqua green blown bottle with some paper label residue. Black painted lettering on the bottle: "Lemon" in small letters, what appears to be "Ess Lemon" in larger script letters. Lettering at the bottom is also difficult to decode, might be "BFS" or "BES." Reed wrapping has darkened with age. There are some breaks. Likely dates from the late 1800s or early 1900s.
This was passed down in a family, the story is it was used for purified water for a dentist's office, but we can't confirm or deny the veracity of the tale.
SIZE 17" high, 8" diameter.
CONDITION Some breaks as noted above, we dusted it gently.
