Collected: Torpedo Like

In Appreciation of Bottles

This bottle rumoured to be found under an outhouse, is suspected to be a castor oil bottle. Castor oil, from the giant castor bean plant is toxic until heated and is a good cure for constipation.

This slender bottle is an unusual form, delicate with soft shoulders and a small, tapered base. The bottom is embossed with a big E.
