    Stoneware bottle form evolution - 1860's - 1870's - 1880's The shapes of Wisconsin stoneware bottles are distinctly different from bottles from other parts of the US. The shoulders of Wisconsin stoneware bottles were rounded rather than square as commonly seen in Eastern stoneware bottles, and the necks tended to be longer and more tapered. The style of the lip evolved over the years, from a mushroom shape on the earliest (1860's) bottles to a tall square style in later years (1880's). These examples typify the body styles of stoneware bottles and how they evolved over time.
