relating to the origin of the akkerman bottle, here are a few predecessors of the akkerman bottle, made by the dutch firm of gimborn.
this inkbottle is the very first "longneck-bottle" or langhalsfles although this bottle doesn`t use the marble in the neck yet.
this bottle is extremely rare, I know of 2 in a museum and a third I`ve dug up in a bottledump in the netherlands, which I traded with
a former employe of Gimborn.
the second model of the "longneck-bottle" are these ones, in two sizes "the baby-longneck" and the "longneck"
to my knowledge, these bottles preceed the waterman bottle of similar design.
these bottles are the third type of "longneck-bottle" and are similar to the ones produced by Akkerman today.
only the size differs slightly, the Akkerman bottles are slightly smaller.
this third type of langhalsfles or "longneck-bottle" later came with a different type of cap, made of yellow bakelite which was more prone to leaking.
