Damigiana

In Italy, large balloon bottles (wicker bottles) made of glass, usually 28 or 54 litres, wrapped in raffia, were used, in which "vino sciolto"(open wine) was filled and sold "over the counter". The vessel is also used for olive oil. The French equivalent is called Dame-Jeanne (see the meaning of the name there), the Argentinean Damajuana. See also under bottles and wine vessels.
