I wouldn't believe that bottle has anything to do with a brothel without some documentation to prove it.

good story but I'm sceptical.
more likely it was just an advertising gimmick like all the other motto flasks
luv to see some documentation

Ebay seems to have opened all sorts of new avenues in creative marketing............... nothing like a good story to create interest eh??

I have dug alot of brothel crappers and wells and the bottles in them are the same as anyone else would use. You can always tell you are in a brothel privy. They have alot of vinegar, liquor, bleach and Lydia Pinkham's bottles in them.

Perfumes, cosmetics, Douches & syringes would be plentiful in a cathouse privy also.
