This is a 10-ounce vintage soda glass for Tru Treat Grapefruit Drink. Tru Treat was a carbonated grapefruit drink that disappeared sometime around the late 1960s. Although their logo is similar to that of Tru Ade soda.

This glass, once used at a soda fountain, has a fill line that indicated to the soda jerk how much syrup to put in the glass before adding ice and carbonated water. The molded mark (script L) on the bottom of the glass indicates it was made by Libby. The Libby Glass Company was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1818. In 1888 the company was moved to Toledo, Ohio. In 1935 Libby merged with Owens-Illinois, and remain one of the largest glassmakers in the world today.
