Amber Glass Bottle, Made By The Owens-Illinois Glass Co, Late 1950s.

 

The Owens-Illinois Glass Co. began with The Merger of Two Of The Industry Giants, The Illinois Glass Co. and The Owens Glass Co. The Illinois Glass Co. was incorporated in March 1873 and began business in August of that year. The company was successful and made virtually every type of bottle.

The Merger Between The Owens Glass Co. and The Illinois Glass Co. brought under the Owens umbrella became The “Largest Individual Bottle Plant In The World.”

In 1954, Owens-Illinois Adopted a New Logo that eliminated The Diamond Logo. Some Plants Adopted This I-In-An-Oval Mark almost Immediately, and Some Plants Delayed The Use Of The New Logo.
