    Pre-1800 Wine Bottle?

    This bottle would date around 1840 - 1850 and would have held French Cognac. These bottles are also known as cheats bottles because of the very high kick up which lowered the amount of liquid.

    why would a bottle have a rounded bottom,cannot stand on it's own

    The reason these bottles mainly used for Soda Water or Lemonade were kept lying down instead of upright is that as mentioned kept the cork wet and tight in the bottle. If stood upright the cork would dry out and loosen allowing the escape of the gas or carbonation.

    Ink or bird feeder?

    How about a fly trap where you dangle something sweet from inside the top and flies enter through the side and always tend to try and get out at the top of any jar etc.
