    Is this a demijohn?

    I apologize as I don't know anything about bottles. This looks like a 3 piece part though. Any thoughts on what it is and a timeframe?

    Hello thinkingit,

    Welcome to this place and thanks for bringing the demijohn.

    What's the bottom look like? You didn't mention anything size, or capacity wise...

    From.

    I'll have to look again but I don't think there are any markings on the bottom. I can post photos later. I can also do measurements but I'd estimate the capacity at about 4 gallons???

    Hey thinking,

    The bottle folk look for other things beside markings. Nice close ups of the base and lip may help them get a better handle on dates.

    How'd you come by it? Was it wrapped? Will you be making tasty beverages?

    It could be a Carboy, which are the larger size and ovoid shape ?

    I will get better photos of the lip and base. There are some markings such as some numbers which I was told were mold marks to match them up???

    Not sure what would help so here goes. Also, I'm used to using img codes or html for larger photos so if anyone can point me in that direction vs. 200k or smaller photos, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks!
