DEMIJOHN LOVE

TIALYS



































Saw a beautiful photo on MISS MOSS from her recent honeymoon to NYC of a glass demijohn bottle containing a plant with suspended roots. I must be the last person on earth to put two and two together with this lovely trend. The odds of owning a vintage one of these beauties is nigh on impossible as they range in price on ebay from a minimum of R1 000 up to R7 000.
So if you have one, guard it with your life! Will have to do a antique shop trawl.
Demijohns are handblown glass bottles used to store wine or fruit brandy. They used to be wrapped in rattan or wicker to protect the contents and prevent breakage. Range of sea glass greens.
