Steward and Patteson Brewery Bottle

Here we have a Steward and Patteson Torpedo bottle, also known as Hamilton bottles, which were used for aerated or carbonated water. They were oval shaped with a neck at one end, and were deliberately designed so that they could not be stored upright. The goal was to keep the cork wet so that it did not dry out and crack, thereby releasing the carbonation.
