Glass was accidentally discovered by Phoenician merchants after they placed red hot cooking pots on stones consisting of nitrate. The nitrate melted and mixed with the sandy beach to form an opaque liquid. Over the next millennium jar makers used this liquid to glaze pots & vases until the art of glassblowing introduced all glass containers. Fast-forward several hundred of years to the industrial revolution when the Round Bottle was used all over to contain concoctions ranging from spirits to snake-oil.
