The Demijohn or Carboy, also spelled Carbouy originally referred to a large glass vessel with a small neck, encased in wicker. The word Demijohn comes from the French dame-jeanne, (Lady Jane), first used in France during the 17th century. Others will say it derived from the name of a Persian town, Damghan, but neither is proven. Carboys were designed for transporting liquids, mostly water or wine. **Top reads "VIRESA" and belly reads "15-LTS" **One snail shell, but hard to see, (image 6) top center.
