TWO Antique Glass Bottles decanters made by Owens Illinois Glass Company 1940s genie bottle shape with metal lids swirl vases bottle decanter

TWO Glass Decanter bottles made by Owens Illinois Glass Company from the 1940s with metal screw on lids. They have a wonderful swirl pattern and would look amazing as decanters, storage bottles or vases. They are marked with the Owens Illinois marks, a diamond with a circle and I in the center. This dated them to be in the 40’s or earlier, Owens dropped the diamond in the 50’s. They also have the number 25(which is code for the 25th factory which was in Indiana and 4, which stands for 1944). Below the diamond one has a 5 imprint, the other 10. From doing research no one knows what these numbers mean. info from here: http://www.sha.org/research/owens-Illinois_article.cfm

I believe it was a container for some kind of kitchen supply, vinegar or oil, maybe even wine or alcohol. Very cool piece and in perfect condition, no chips or cracks. The lids are a little rusty though, may want to replace, clean or not use them if storing liquid in them. Gorgeous for a shabby chic French spa look in your bathroom. Use them to store bubble bath or bath salts. Use as a vase with a single bloom. Very Pretty!

Dimensions:9″ tall with lid. 5″ wide at base
