Actually, Duraglas was only in operation from 1940-Late 1950s. The "7" most likely indicates the bottle plant where it was made.

The 7 with a . after it is 1947. The actual glass company is Owens-Illinois. Duraglass is the type of glass.
Good call on the date. I'm a bit rusty with Owens Illinois. I recall there are three numbers, but I don't recall which one was which
