The Anatomy of a Bottle
When describing the structure of a bottle, there are several characteristics that should be considered. The base of the bottle is its most prominent feature, and the measurements for this part should be taken into account. The outermost edge of this base is the resting point of the bottle, while the body lies between the shoulder and heel. The measurements for the neck, body, and rim should also be taken into consideration. To learn more about the anatomy of a bottle, see the sections below:
The calabash is a large pear or gourd-shaped bottle popular during the mid-19th century. These bottles were sometimes called “globe bottles” by makers of the period. The name of this style probably derives from the “calabash tree” (Crescentia cujete), which is a tropical American plant. The illustration to the left shows a calabash bottle. These types of bottles are not common in the United States, but they were once popular.
Typology is an analysis of shapes and types, including the shapes and sizes of bottles. This is the study of the different styles of bottles, also known as bottle typing. This section of the website focuses on the subject, and includes a page devoted entirely to this subject. It contains pages on the different aspects of typology, beginning with a main page devoted to bottle typing and diagnostic shapes. When choosing a font for your application, make sure that it is easy to read.
A glossary for the terms used on the site is a good place to start. This section covers both common and specialized terminology. It covers glassmaking jargon as well as technical glassmaking jargon. The glossary also includes any specialized terminology that you might want to know about historic bottles. The words in this section are primarily used by collectors, and they are not uncommon among glassworkers. If there are alternative words, they are generally noted in the lexicon.
In addition to its name, Bottle is a micro-web framework for Python. Its modular design means that it can be used for almost any purpose, from web applications to apps. And because it has no dependencies, it is easy to use. Unlike other web frameworks, it is fast and easy to customize. Whether you’re building a simple web application, or a complex, multi-layered website, it will be easier to customize and maintain.
The jargon used on the site and in the glossary is important for a variety of reasons. The most common is a collector’s term for a bottle, while the others are technical and artistic in nature. While a collector may have a specific reason for using a particular bottle, it is more than likely that they’ll use it for its other purpose as well. Some collectors even refer to a bottle as a “quality ware” if it is of a high standard.
