      Laurens Glass Works of S.C. made it.

      Often they used 2 numbers to make a date-code. Because they used only one (a 3), I can only speculate, but the type of Dr Pepper bottle it is (with a period in Dr., which was removed in I think 1947) and being debossed (rather than embossed) in their art-deco style bottle, makes me think it dates to:
      1943.

      10 2 4 is 10 minutes to four, which was believed to be a time peoples' blood-sugar would crash, so it was the perfect time to drink a Dr Pepper.

      The Dr Pepper slogan is actually:
      "Drink a bite to eat at 10 2 and 4"

      Don't forget the Good For Life part.
