Looking for information on large green demijohn bottle


I picked this bottle up at a thrift store recently and thought it was a nice decorative piece. When I got it home and looked at it a bit closer, I started to wonder if it might be older than I first thought.

It is blue-green in color within no mold lines or maker’s marks. The glass seems thicker at the base and neck. I see lots of bubbles in the glass. There are no cracks or chips. It is approximately 19-1/2” tall, 7-1/2” at the base, 11–1/2” to 12” at the shoulder, and has a 1” opening.

I would greatly appreciate any information you can offer about it’s age, origin, and value. It is fairly dirty inside and any advice about cleaning it would be great as well.

Thank you so much for your help!


  • Nice decorator. This one I'd guess is Western Europe in origin. A "fermenter" from the latest 19th or early 20th century.

  • Thank you so much for the information!
