These two bottles were recovered from a farmstead in Chautauqua County during a 1995 salvage excavation by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. The clear glass bottle has an external small mouth threaded finish and an embossed "V" within a circle on each side. The embossed bottle maker's mark on the bottom may be from the Diamond Glass Company of Royersford, Pennsylvania (1885-1990). The brown glass bottle with an external small mouth threaded finish and a metal screw-on cap was possibly used as a condiment bottle. The bottle maker's mark embossed on the bottom of the bottle shows it is from the Owens-Illinois Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio, and based on the date mark, the bottle was made in either 1929, 1939, or 1949.

Date: 1885-1935
