Information About the Owens-Illinois Glass Company....cool stuff!
I within an “O” or oval ……………………………………………………… see this page with more info: Owens-Illinois Glass Company. Owens-Illinois, formerly headquartered at Toledo, OH, now Perrysburg, Ohio (1929 to present), has used three major trademarks over the last 90+ years. (“Diamond and oval entwined with I in the center”; “I inside an O”, and presently simply “O-I”). Approximately 25 glass manufacturing locations are in the US and Canada, with the most recently opened plant at Windsor, Colorado. This mark used from c. 1954 up to fairly recently, being gradually replaced with the “O-I” mark on most bottles.
The diamond was removed from the “old” mark beginning around 1954, although a few bottle molds apparently didn’t have the diamond eliminated (i.e., the mold re-engraved) until as late as the 1960s. After 1958 the great majority of O-I bottles carried this simplified mark of just an I inside an O. On recent bottles, this mark may be small, faint, and not always easily discernible, usually seen embossed on the heel of the container. O-I is presently (2021) the largest glass making corporation in the world. A wide variety of glass containers are made, primarily for food and beverage products.
