Menu Water Carafe 1L with Smart Lid Black [amazon]

This plain glass Water Carafe by Jakob Wagner has distinctive, softly rounded, angular lines. A new, refreshing reinterpretation of the classic bottle archetype.

The lid holds back ice cubes, lemon slices and provides unwanted objects from dripping down into the contents. Both water and colored drinks look great behind the clear glass!
