July's #artifactofthemonth is the ceramic lid to an antique feeding bottle. "The Alexandra Feeding Bottle" was produced by S. Maw Son & Thomson dating to ca. 1870–1918. These bottles were convenient, but were difficult to clean and became incubators for bacteria causing a noticeable increase in infant mortality during the Victorian Age.
