Place of Origin

Maker Owens Bottle Company

Maker Details Known as Owens Bottle Machine Company beginning in 1903, the name was changed to Owens Bottle Company circa 1919. In 1916, Owens acquired the American Bottle Company (A B CO) plants with manufacturing locations at Streator, Illinois and Newark, Ohio. The "O" in a square mark according to U.S. Patent & Trademark Office data, first use was in the year 1919, around the time Owens Machine Bottle Company officially became Owens Bottle Company. Tremendous numbers of machine-made containers of all types are found with the O inside a square (or “box”) mark on the bottom, including medicine bottles, chemical, salve, utility, food, beverage, sauce, cosmetic, perfume, packer jars, and many other types.
