The principals behind the Maugham's patent/roundender, hamilton/torpedo bottle are the same. Both were designed to only be stored laying flat thus keeping the cork wet and preventing spoilage.

Within South Australia the most impressive of these patents would be the Knapman & Sons cannon trademark roundender and the Paxton Hindley street Hamilton with its ornate writing.
