Very nice antique glass flycatcher.
Exceptional, beautiful still with the mouth blown glass still complete with glass stopper.
Approximately 1900, France
This is the most efficient and ecological flycatcher ever!!
The best method from grandmothers time.
Originally intended for indoor flies, but it works according to the same principle as a wasp trap.
Beer or another sugary beverage was poured into the bottom edge and the lured insects 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.
Height with stopper = 20 cm
Diameter = 14 cm
Weight = 240 grams
Beautiful used condition.
Will be carefully packaged and sent by registered and insured mail.
