  1. I recently found a Lamont bottle whilst excavating around my old cottage in Hobart. The bullet stopper was still in the bottle, and I was able to carefully extract it. The stopper is Bakelite, and has the Lamont symbol embossed on the round tip of the bullet (needed a microscope to see this), plus the words ‘Made in Germany’. On the concave end of the stopper is the number 2. So, bottle manufactured in Glasgow, stopper manufactured in Germany, and bottle with soda sold in Hobart in about 1880.
