Mineral water bottle

Bottles with internal threaded screw stoppers were invented in 1872. The thread was usually made of ebonite, a hard form of rubber, or lignum vitae, a dense and durable wood.   Although the internal screw stopper was introduced in 1872, the Codd design remained popular until the 1930s when the crown capped bottle became established. This mineral water bottle from R Carruthers of Dumfries shows the internal threaded screw stopper design.
