These bottles are almost unique in the bottle world in having two very distinct string rims, this feature was developed to strengthen the top of the neck to withstand the considerable pressure of bottled cider which seemed to be the main use of this type of bottle. The top string rim is nearly always bigger than the bottom one. A nice little feature is the way the two string rims are joined by the same cordon of molten glass as on the neck of 2.26. Like the bottles in the previous page they are slimmer than earlier bottles and the shoulders are very square. The piece of tubular glass that remains in the push up of these bottles is very big and chunky and very sharp, so beware. All were found in Normandy and 2.126 came from the same cellar as the three in the previous page. Dates 1760 - 1800.
