In addition, this site also assists the user with these questions: 3.
What technology, techniques, or processes were used to manufacture the bottle? Where did the bottle come from, i.e., where was it made and/or used? Where can I go for more information on historic bottles?
The ship appeared on the bottles between the words "Old" and "Spice", which were in red script.
Beneath the ship, the words "Ship Grand Turk" appeared in a banner.
Sometime around 1880 it became common practice to tool the lips with a lipping tool, an object which fit one piece into the opening of the neck while two other pieces clamped on the outside of the applied band of glass.
Then with a twisting motion, the top was uniformly shaped.
and my site attempts to answer, in at least some cases if possible, a couple of these questions: Where, and approximately when, perhaps, was this piece of glass made?
Bottles produced during the last twenty years of the last century will show evidence of this twisting motion which left faint concentric rings around the mouth and upper part of the neck.
This motion also erased the mold seam in the process.
On the back of the containers in blue appeared the contents: "After Shave Talc," "After Shaving Lotion," or "Cologne for Men." Over the years, the Grand Turk has taken on a more stylized appearance.
By the 1940s, the demand for Old Spice After Shave and Talc had risen to the millions of bottles.
