Place of Origin
Maker Chattanooga Glass Company
Maker Details Charles Reif and his colleagues organized the Chattanooga Bottle & Glass Mfg. Co. at Alton Park, Tennessee in 1901, primarily to make bottles for Reif’s Chattanooga Brewing Co. The makers mark ('c' inside a circle) was used c.1927-1988. The circle reportedly may be either 'single line' or 'double line' on some earlier bottles. Chattanooga Glass Company made tremendous quantities of the classic 'hobbleskirt' shaped Coca-Cola bottles. In 1960 Dorsey Corporation acquired the company. Since 1985 the company has been a part of Diamond Container General, with corporate offices in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
