Book Review

Victorian Demijohns
By Ken Arnold & David Bickford

Author Ken Arnold has excelled once again in giving the avid reader a good insight into the historical fact, social history, pictures of shops, people, towns and images of many stone jar demijohns which survived these long gone Victorian business houses. For the most part these demijohns were produced by all the well known Australian Potteries. Though branding was restricted in small numbers, those that have survived are well sort after by collectors.

When David Bickford, bottle collector, as a young man diversified into Bendigo Demijohns and then into Victorian Demijohns, one could not image the enormity of his task ahead to try and capture as many known specimens as possible.

In this very well researched book Victorian Demijohns, the reader begins to realise that not only was there one General Store or Wine Shop associated with most Victorian towns but some times several and of these many had variations in their branded stone jars we call demijohns, of which held their products some 100 years ago.

There is certainly room for a second book as the list will grow with the sharing of knowledge between collectors.

The Victorian Demijohns book covers a vast historical era and area and gives details of many an enterprising Victorian business; the book is of some 200 pages, many black & white images.

Victorian Demijohns book is available from Antique Bottles for $35 plus $10 postage for a total of $45. Delivery or pick up can be arranged in Central Victoria or Melbourne.

A must for any collectors' library.
