Vintage demijohns, carboys, and bottles

I really love old French and Spanish demijohns and carboys (carboys are very large demijohns). The beautiful vessels, many of which are over a hundred years old, were made to hold wine, vinegar and cider. Everything shown above is sourced from J. Peterman and is dated between 1900-1930. Below is an assortment of early 20th century antique Jeroboam Burgundy bottles ($89) and a Balthazar Bordeaux bottle ($199) which holds 12 liters (both shown with standard size wine bottle for scale). I love the old labels and think they make great vases or accents.
