Glass Bottles from
The Glass Encyclopedia

A short note on bottles:
Glass bottles have been made since pre-Roman times, using core-formed techniques involving wrapping a coil of molten glass around a shape made of mud and straw and other materials which could be removed from the bottle once it cooled. These bottles were very expensive and used mostly for perfumes and valuable oils.

The Romans invented glass blowing, and made it possible to produce glass bottles in large numbers. For the past two thousand years glass bottles have been used as containers for all kinds of liquids. Variations in shape have been designed for easy transportation, for aesthetic reasons, to contain pressure within the bottle, or to make the contents appear more.

The bottle on the left is a recent art glass ornament, not intended for any practical purpose, and made in New Zealand around 1975.

The Glass Museum On Line has a very interesting article on glass apothecary vials by Walt Rigling. Click Glass Apothecary Vials
