Summary: History of the prescription bottle from 1800-1950 in the United States.
Abstract: This slide talks provides a brief history of the prescription bottle in the United States from 1800 to 1950, from the fragile, free-blown, green glass phials closed with corks at the beginning of the nineteenth century, through the myriad of styles and designs that were hand-blown in so many colors, to the practical, machine-made flint and amber ovals with screw caps at the middle of the twentieth century.
