This selection of nine (9) authentic glass bottle tops/stoppers is from the site of an old pub (hotel) in the Adelaide Hills.

They are lovely and very tactile – some are smooth, while others are quite pitted and chipped – and they come in varying shades of turquoise or sea green.

These stoppers would most likely have had a cork ‘sheath’ around the shank to provide a tight seal when in the bottle and were commonly referred to as a 'flat hood' or 'club sauce' type stopper, particularly when Lea & Perrin (later, HP Foods and, later still, HJ Heinz) began to use them extensively for their bottles of Worcestershire sauce.

Given where these stoppers were found, it’s likely the bottles they came from held liquor or wine (they weren't generally used for carbonated drinks) and that they are well over 100 years old because the pub is long gone and only ruins remain where it once stood.

The largest stopper measures 3 cm (1.2 inches) in diameter and stands 3.5 cm (1.4 inches) tall; while the smallest measures 2 cm (0.8 inches) in diameter and stands 3 cm (1.2 inches) tall.

This set would be a fabulous instant collection for a rustic, vintage or industrial decor setting.

Alternatively, they would be perfect for craft or jewelry making purposes ... perhaps as stunning pendants?
