I've found a couple wicker bottles in the past,
but this one truly merits being called a demijohn,
measuring 15" tall and 8" diameter at its widest point.
Upon further inspection, on the bottom,
there was a piece of wood with only a few letters.
Thank the gods for Google, I was able to find a match
for the incomplete words, (H. Heye Hamburg), telling me this gorgeous
treasure came from Germany.
If I didn't purchase this specifically for selling,
I would sooo keep it.
Look how fabulous it looks with my other treasures.
I also bought this hand mirror the day before.
All brass, with fantastic raised details, and ruffled edges.
I just couldn't stop taking pictures of this grouping.
So much texture and contrast, that is was difficult
to take a bad picture. I think it needs a place in my banner.
This demijohn is definitely the find of my week, or maybe my month,
and is a perfect example of why treasure-hunting soothes
Dear Demijohn, it's not you, it's me. I have financial needs
that outweigh my love for you. I'm sure you will find
someone on Ebay who will love you more than money.
Farewell, my German friend.......
