Known as Owens-Illinois, Inc.On many bottles, a single-digit date code along with the diamond/oval/I mark may indicate the 1930s.From information compiled in Bill Lockhart’s article (link below) on Owens-Illinois’ date code markings, it appears that, on containers with this earliest trademark, if a single digit date code (such as “O” or “1” placed to the right of the logo) the chances are very good the bottle in question dates from the 1940s, especially the 1940-1947 period.
