Bottle, 'torpedo', green glassAbout this object
Bottle, torpedo-shaped, green glass, with pointed base and narrow neck.
Bottles with rounded or pointed bases were typically used for non-alcoholic carbonated beverages such as soda, mineral water, or ginger ale. They were designed to ensure that the bottle was stored on its side so that the cork would not dry out and shrink, allowing the contents to loose carbonation or evaporate.
