1800’s baby bottle?

I have 5 'baby feeder bottles' in my collection so far and I love them, even though their nickname at the time was "murder bottles". They had a long rubber tube leading from the bottle to the teat and, largely thanks to Mrs Beeton, mothers would only wash the tube once every 2-3 weeks! Obviously this led to numerous infant deaths, with only 2 in 10 children making it to their 2nd birthday.

My bottles are called 'The Alexandra', 'Our Beauties', 'The Doreen' and, because I love it so much, I have 2 'Toothsome Tit Bit' bottles.
