This is a circa 1920's blue-tint glass bottle from the LaPorte Bottling Works of LaPorte, Indiana. - The top collar area is embossed with four stars and on one side LA PORTE and the other side BOTTLING WORKS.
- Embossed around the lower bottom is LA PORTE, IND. and on the other side CONTENTS 7 FL.OZ. - Below that is 1868 - 27 (the 27 looks like it is changed in the mold occasionally, possibly to note year of manufacture)
On the bottom is embossed in large letters L & V, the mold number 1, and a diamond (which has a letter in it but cannot be distinguished) - possibly an Owens-Illinois mark.
- L & V is for Luebker & Voegler Bros. of which company history I could only find mentions of 1920 to 1925 in the LaPorte history archives. Believed to be a soda bottle.
