Here is something that may be helpful, actually don't know why I didn't think to look into this before.
Prohibition in the United States was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic
beverages from 1920 to 1933.
I didn't know it started back in 1920, I thought it was a little later.
This Crystal Glass Company in Los Angeles was in business from 1921 to 1928. They began business in the first year of prohibition and went under five
years before it ended. So the bottle couldn't have been for an alcoholic beverage if the product it contained was produced for sale in the U.S. at
Even though I couldn't find it yet, it is possible that Imperial actually got started during prohibition and it's trade mark was registered with some
other agency or organization other than the federal government. There was a void to fill with NA beverages at the time and maybe Imperial was trying
to capitalize on that. Then once prohibition was over they became officially "established" with the switch over to alcoholic beverages.
That is the theory I'm going with until I get some solid verification.
