      There is what looks like the faint remains of a non-Owens type machine suction scar on the bottom. Owens pioneered the machine in 1906 as an automated process. I would think this came off a semi-automatic machine post 1906. Semi-automated machines blew the bottle but could not finish the top.

      RacAtac, thanks for your information. I didn't know about the use of other machines besides Owens-types. The bottle came from an area that had bottles from 1890's to 1920's so that still fits into the era.
