Illinois Ovals 

C.M. Schofield invented the Lyric Oval in 1912 and assigned the patent to the Sheldon-Foster Glass Co. the following year (Figure 35). Sheldon-Foster sold the Chicago Heights plant to the Chicago Heights Glass Co. later in 1913, and the new firm made the first Lyric Oval bottles. By the end of the year, the Illinois Glass Co. had acquired the factory and patent rights.

Illinois Glass made the bottles, still using the Lyric trademark along with the Diamond-I logo, until the 1929 merger (Figures 36 & 37). Toward the end of the 1920s, the firm added the word “ILLINOIS” (Figure 38). Owens-Illinois called the same bottle the Illinois Oval and added the typical Owens-Illinois codes (although the left code still was not a factory number). The company continued to produce the Illinois Ovals until 1949 (Figure 39).
