      Why did they make that shape that cannot stand up?
    7. spiritschweppes spiritschweppes, 7 years ago
      Hi Baylou, the "eggbottles" have a round end to prevent them from being stood up. The idea was that the soda kept in contact with the cork and stopped the cork from shrinking; the corks would dry up and shrink on upright bottles, causing the bottle to loose pressure. A side advantage for the merchant was that the consumer had to finish the beverage before the bottle could be laid down. (
