T - Time was in the past before the introduction of screw on caps and other types of caps for bottle sealing, that bottle corks was pretty much a necessity. Most bottles from the 19th century and some into the early 20th century were designed for receiving a cork stopper.
I thought a bottle collector or collector of advertising for a country store project, might like this old box (EMPTY) that once held a variety of sizes of household bottle corks. This package clearly states on the side that it was manufactured by the MUNDET CORK CORP, Brooklyn, NY. The graphics have a charm all their own and the front has a price sticker of 15 cents for 40 household bottle corks. The side of the box describes the various types of bottles that these corks were designed to fit, including prescription bottles, nursing, vials, and various sizes from half pint to one gallon. The box is stuffed with polyfil to give it stability. A nice addition to your advertising collectibles or other purposes - or fill it with your own assortment of bottle corks.
