    At the beginning of the exploitation of nitrate, a solution to the problem of lack of drinking water was the importation of thousands of bottles of mineral water from Belfast Ireland.
    These bottles were based rounded, so to be transported and kept stretched (such as shown in
    his glass and labels). To protect them from shock brought
    a bundle of vegetable fibers or straw.
    Today they are called "torpedo bottles" of which there are some
    with a pointed base.

      Very nice bottles, I am especially fond of torpedos

      Packrat- place : The rounded base torpedo bottles are more common and can today be found on sale in local fairs and antique dealers, but based on the torpedo tip, be very difficult to find good or for sale.
