As the family home and motherhood came to be considered very precious in the late C19th, baby related items were often given overly romantic names, such as the ‘The Eugenie’, ‘The Cherub’, and ‘The Darling’. These bottles are marked “The Darling Boat Shaped Feeder”. They probably belonged to baby Timothy O’Meara at the Coach and Horses. There is a small hole between the words ‘Darling’ and ‘Boat’ to enable milk flow. Ounce measurements are marked up the side of the bottle from ½ to 8. This size suggests the bottle was manufactured after 1900.
