Here is a bottle that I do not know what it is. It looks like a beaker. It is about 5 1/4" tall. It does have a pontil mark on the bottom. It needs to be cleaned, but otherwise in immaculate condition.

I do have a picture of the bottom, but it isn't very clear.

If it has no handle and if the glass is flawless and thin it would be a beaker. Only cruets
that don't always have handles come in a croupe and are united upon a silver or plated holder.

How would I figure out the age of this?

Hi Danoh maybe someone else can give you an age not much good at that, but would give a quess Mold, but where are mold seams and don't see sign of it being turned in a mold.
