Wares of Knutsford would like to draw attention to its range of amber medicine bottles. These have a number of practical and decorative uses and can be put to great effect by a creative mind.
The amber medicine bottles range
The bottles come in 50ml, 100ml, 300ml and 500ml sizes. The two smaller bottles come with screw caps in black Bakelite in packs of six, 12, 18, 24 or 36. The larger sizes are available with screw caps in EPE lined aluminium or ridged black plastic in packs of six, 12, 24 or 36.
Amber glass is traditionally used for cosmetics bottles to protect the contents from the damaging effects of light. UV rays such as from sunlight can degrade lotions and potions, but the darker amber glass works as a form of sun protection to keep them in the best condition.
If this is no concern or you want to show off the contents, the shame style medicine bottle, with straight sides and high, rounded shoulders, is available in clear glass in 300ml and 500ml sizes.
Remember that Wares of Knutsford charges a flat delivery fee no matter how much you order, so take advantage of economies of scale and bulk buy! Wholesale conditions are available to small business buying in pallet quantities, so don’t hesitate to contact our friendly and helpful staff to discuss your needs.
Using amber medicine bottles around the home
While amber glass bottles have their practical applications, the rich colour can also create quite an impact when used around the home for decorative purposes. Try filling the bottles with a couple of sprigs of delicate flowers such as Queen Anne’s lace or something clean lined and simple such as eucalyptus. Group a few of the bottles together on a windowsill to create a charming vignette.
Try also grouping amber bottles with glass in other colours – try a display group with clear and blue glass, or line small bottles in different coloured glass along a table to update the concept of the centrepiece. This would work equally well at weddings and other events as at home.
You could also make your bathroom look neater and more elegant by decanting your cosmetics products into amber glass bottles. Label them so you know which is which, and see what a coherent look they add to your bathroom instead of the mismatched bottles that were there before.
