Call them, carboy or demijohn or jimmyjohn, they all refer to the same glass bottle. Carboy came from the Persian word; qarabah and demijohn came from the French; dame-jeanne, or Lady Jane. We believe the name demijohn, originated from circa 1700 and referred to any glass vessel, with a narrow neck and a large body and presumably encased in wicker. These could make a great pair of lamps? Measurements provided are for the one on the left. The one on the right is 14" high and 11" in diameter.
