    McAvoy Brew. CO. Chicago, ILL. USA. Contents 12 oz." Bottom embossed with "ROOT" (Root Glass Co.). I presume the production date is between 1865-1920, correct?

      Root began in 1901 and ended in like 1928, but their mark was seen on bottles by the glass-house that bought them out until some time in the early 1930s. In the 1910s-1920s, Root began putting date-codes on the heel of SOME bottles, so if there is a number on the heel of the bottle.. it may help represent a date for production of the mould.
      It's likely 1910s-Prohibition era, as labeling on the glass the exact measured contents I don't think was mandatory till around 1910ish.
