    Why did they make that shape that cannot stand up?
  7. spiritschweppes spiritschweppes, 3 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. (
