Antique Green Glass Torpedo Bottle Round Bottom

Condition of these bottles: good. They are vintage bottles and most of the blemishes are a result of the manufacturing process. They are farm fresh and were discovered in a barn located in Teton Valley Idaho. See pictures. Further pictures will be posted upon request
The Torpedo bottles have a round end to prevent them from being stood up. The idea was that the soda kept in contact with the cork and stopped the cork from shrinking; the corks would dry up and shrink on upright bottles, causing the bottle to loose pressure. A side advantage for the merchant was that the consumer had to finish the beverage before the bottle could be laid down. These bottles are known as ''Hamiltons'' in the United Kingdom, named after their inventor Paul Hamilton.
