Never seen one before,found it in a fireplace(long story) buried under broken pottery and bits of metal almost black with grime,amazing what you can do with a toothbrush and washing up liquid! ;D

Nice find. I have more information on the Giraffe Carafe, in particular the later 'fat bellied' ones. Soon to be published in a book called Chance Additions (but at this rate will be renamed Fat Chance... ::))
