A bottle is a glass or plastic container. There are many different kinds of bottles. Generally, a bottle has one of three main parts. The base, the rim, and the neck. These three features are usually grouped together, but they can also be used separately.
The base is the lowest part of a bottle. The rim is the topmost part. The rim is also called the lip by some authors. This is often the only part of a finish that has two meanings, depending on the context. In some cases, it is the same thing as the collar.
The rim is the most extreme part of the finish. The other major parts of a finish are the neck and the body. The neck is the constricted part of the bottle. It is commonly considered to be the same as the lip, but some authors consider it to be part of the finish. The neck is normally below the finish, and it is often manipulated during the finishing process of mouth-blown bottles.
The shoulder is the transitional zone between the two major parts of a bottle. It is typically located between the base and the body. This area is sometimes referred to as the orifice. The orifice is also referred to as the opening. It is typically made of a coloured glass. This allows it to absorb the light that is being directed to it, protecting the contents from evaporation.
The body is the main content of a bottle. It is a hollow cylindrical object. It is the most important part of a bottle. The body is often the same as the base, but can also be the same as the rim. The body can be the same color or tinted. It is mainly used to contain liquids, but can also be used to contain semiliquids, like soda.
The collar is the upper part of a finish. It is a ring shaped like a glass “wedding band.” The collar is sometimes referred to as the ring. It is also a term used for the whole finish.
The rim is the extreme uppermost part of the finish. It is sometimes referred to as the lip, but in some cases it is the same thing as the ring. It is sometimes referred to as the “mouth” or the “top.” This is also the same as the collar, but the rim is usually the preferred choice.
The lip is a very small part of a finish, and it is used as a shorthand for the entire finish. It is not very common for a finish to have more than three parts. It is usually the least expensive, but repeated handling costs can offset this benefit. The other major parts of a finish include the throat, which is the mouth of the bottle, and the neck. The throat is sometimes referred to as the mouth.
The rim is the topmost part of a bottle. It is usually the most difficult to stack because it is the same as the rim. It is also the most commonly confused part of a bottle.
