Thanks. There was a Decker's dairy near Carbondale, Pa.
The only greens I'm aware of from PA were East End Dairy (see earlier picture on this thread) & anecdotally, someone found a shard from Dolfinger, although I've not seen proof of it.

Two Big Elm Dairy quarts. The one on the right has the size above the slug plate, but the contents of the slug plates are slightly different as well. Look at the Y in DAIRY relative to the Y in company.

Here are 6 of the 7 variations of Langs Creamery green quarts known to me.
The 2 on the left were made by Owens & the other 4 were made by Reed.
Apart from the text above the slug plates each of the slug plate contents are slightly different.
The Owens cursive text joins at the top where the Reed bottles have a gap at the top of the A & the G
The script on the bottle third from the left is very thick.
If I were the client I would have rejected these.
There are also differences at the end of the underscore under Langs relative to the L.
