A Few Notes on French-Made Perrier Bottles
In this collection from False Creek that I've been studying, I've noticed a couple of things about French-made bottles.
It appears that the French didn't like to have mould seams on their bottles. There is evidence on at least some of them that they either used turn moulds or they heat-treated their bottles after they were made to remove the seams. This is only an hypothesis. And as of yet I have no proof.
But here is a Perrier bottle. Perrier in 1910 got Owens Machines with which to make their bottles. The feathered scar on the bottom is the telling characteristic of Owens machines.
