Old is a relative term, these don't appear old to me. You can get this same form, color and lip treatment with demis you can buy brand new today, but they could could be mid 1900's in my opinion... That being said, if you like them and can get them at a price you like I say buy them...[;)]

I'm with Jim. They look like machine made type. You can find them in plastic baskets with handles. They are a beautiful color and, like Jim said, if they are a good price they will brighten up a room.

Demijohns' in this teardrop shape are usually considered French in origin. The color is nice and the price seems right [:)]

You can't go wrong for that price, you can always sell them to people looking to use them for homemade wine if you grow sick of them..
