I think the concept of sustainability started with the recycling of the bottles. This is an image of a drying rack for the bottles for refills. Glass making was dated back to the Phoenicians. The art of glass making was not common so many glass handlers make custom bottles for clients. I guess the idea still progressed throughout the 1800s because the glass bottles were not fully mass produced for the public.
This French Wine rack is very interesting because of its history and the orientation of the placement of the bottles which looks like a tree.
