A French Flycatcher Bottle

Stock ID:  11028

A 19th century French fly-catching bottle, the quirky and clever work of a pre-insecticide glassblower. If the internal rim of this open bottle is filled with syrupy water, it will attract flies and wasps, which will not find their way out of the bottle. Area of Normandy, circa 1850.
