View Full Version : Owens Illinois Trade Mark

04-26-2013, 01:26 AM
I'm new to this bottle collecting and I understand the pic of the bottle I'm asking about is not an older bottle.I'm more interested in the trademark and date of bottle..
The number to the right of the trademark is the year the bottle was made and the number to the left the plant depending what year it might have been.
In the pic of the bottle I'm asking about the number to the right is 0,so what year was the bottle made?

Hi there...

Take a look at this article posted on my Historic Bottle Website. It should help answer your questions.

Hi Bill, I haven't seen you in a while. How's the printed book coming along? [:)]
Just kidding, that would be an ordeal but if it does come about, I'm interested. Broke, but interested so a paperback would be great. [:)][:)][:)]

Wow,Thanks-I think!!

Why couldn't there be an easier way....that article was a lot of help.

Sorry Deershed, I should have said welcome also. Welcome!
I'm thinking the bottle is 1930 but another picture would help. Both your links are the same picture.

Thanks for the Welcome Cowseatmaize!!

Here's a pic of the bottle itself,nothing special at all.Seems we can't find stuff much earlier then the 40's.
