Very nice antique mouth-blown flycatcher.
Exceptional, still complete with a glass stopper, everything is in a good condition.
The most efficient and ecological flycatcher ever.
Originally intended for indoor flies, but also works as a wasp trap according to the same principle.
Beer or another sugary beverage was poured into the bottom edge and the insects that were lured seek their way inside through the opening at the bottom of the bottle.
Once in the bottle they drown in the liquid or fly around until they give up, because they can no longer find the escape route through the opening at the bottom.
Beautiful mouth-blown antique glass, please see the imperfections and air bubbles.
Height with stopper = 24 cm
Diameter = 15 cm
Nice used condition, with limited wear and tear.
See the photos, these give a clear impression of the object.
Will be carefully packaged and sent by registered and insured mail.
Please also take a look at my other lots.
