This bottle was found inside of a wall of a building. On the bottom, it has an oval with a diamond shape overlapping it. There is also a 1 on the right hand side of this mark.
Just wondering the age of the bottle.

I think it's just an I in a diamond, for the Illinois Glass Co which preceded Owens. I suspect it dates to around 1910, since I don't see too many ABM bottles in that style.

No...it looks like there is a ?97 or possibly ?92 very small in the middle of the diamond shape. It is so faint, it's really hard to see. The 1 is all the way on the right side of the bottom of the bottle. The 1 is not in or touching the oval or the diamond shapes at all.

If there are numbers inside the logo, it's Illinois Glass Company. A diamond logo wih no numbers is Diamond Glass Company of Royersford, PA. A photo of the neck and crown would help determine the age. It's definitely early 1900's.

Does the bottom mark have an O I in the diamond? I can't tell from the picture.
The bottle you have is a worm medicine bottle.Usually thr mark is for the then diamond glass company,or know duraglass company at presen!.
The 1 is the form number used for the shape,and embossment for that bottle.The seam ends at the lip it's a pre-1900 made bottle otherwise it's a 20th. century bottle
