This large demijohn bottle has been beautifully hand blown with lovely proportions. There is a subtle seam suggesting that the glass was joined together. This bottle dates to circa 1930’s / 40’s and the glass is clear with a hint of gray. Condition consistent with age and use.

Why Dame Jeanne?
In 1347, Queen Jane, Queen of Naples and Countess of Provence (La Reine Jeanne) was expelled from her kingdom and sought refuge in Provence. As she passed through the village of Grasse, a thunderstorm hit, and she asked a local man for shelter. He was a glass blower.
