Hello sirs, I'm playing cards and digging up on this bottle, is it that a Chase valley Glass mark on the bottom there? Bottle marks. Com puts it in the 1880s.

I know, are there different Cuban bottle marks? I'm just trying to think CVG with a number 2 puts it around there from what I can find that's all I'm saying. I've got some straight sides, nothing that pretty and nothing looking that old. I'm sticking with it until you can tell me something better.

I'm pretty certain that those CVG marked bottles were either made in Cuba or somewhere else in Latin America. They really don't look American-made to me.

The First Coke Bottle made was right around 1899/1900. And it was in the crown top probably with the Hutchinson soon afterwards as far as I know. LEON.

I'm not arguing the year men, just trying to pique an answer from someone with more extensive info media on the bottlers' logos'. I can understand 'Root', that's in the time line. C V G operated for one year, '81 was supposed to be the last so yes, practically impossible like that ambassador green glass. I suppose we may never know who used this makers mark after Chase. LOL, we might have to move this to general chat soon.

It's all cool. Not only would it be impossible for Chase to have made this bottle, those letters aren't shown as any of that firm's known markings on https://www.glassbottlemarks.com/bottlemarks-3/ . Also, the first letter looks more like a "G" than the last, if it's a "G" at all. It may be "GVC" or "CVC", and may not even be the mark of the glasshouse at all, but that of the moldmaker himself, or something else. You never know. Just more food for thought.
