Bottle

This glass beer bottle is one of a collection of bottles and stoppers found in a rubbish dump near Tulliallan Castle in Kincardine in Fife. It dates from the 19th century.

The front is sand blasted with, 'J.S.Stocks, Kincardine' surrounding a large letter 'S'.

In Victorian times, advertising grew and was used by manufacturers as a way of appealing to their customers. Brand goods were developed and certain types of container were recycled. These included bottles which were a useful means of advertising products.
