Dutch Torpedo Soda Bottle

$250.00

Embossed on the bottle: Nieuwe Ijsfabriek. Translation: New Ice Factory.

To solve the problem of the cork drying out on mineral bottles the solution was to change the design of the bottle to an egg shape that could not be sat in an upright position. It had to rest on its side keeping the cork in constant contact with the fluid thus keeping it from drying out.
