    My bottle is very lopsided at the base. The height varies from 4.00 to 4.35. The base is 3.75. The average ratio is 1.113

    I referenced this thread that gave criteria for Dutch vs English bottles of this type:
    https://www.antique-bottles.net/show...Glass-or-Dutch

    My bottle has a small relatively small pointed pontil and has a distinct greenish tint as described for Dutch bottles.

    I would also put this in the 1800's, probably mid 1800 due to the lip finish.

    I am still looking at different references. All I have fairly conclusively determined is that it is after 1760.

    Do you have a reference that describes the different lip finishes?

    I wish you would post a profile image of the bottle, a close-up of the lip finish, and an image of the pontil-scar. You are much more likely to get a reliable ID if you will do so. For comparison:

    Hard to tell from the angle on the one picture of the bottle, but it looks to me like that lip is going to be somewhere in the 1790-1810 range on the illustration of lip forms. If that illustration is definitive, it's an earlier bottle than 1820. Nice!

    Mid 18th century,probably used by a mariner,sailor to pass away his time at sea? If it could only talk! You should keep info about it,with it,When and where you found it,Very nice find.

    Based on coins we found with similar bottles in Charleston, SC I would guess 1820 +/- 10 years. We found Spanish coins dating back to the 1780's and US coins from the first and second decade of the 1800's. Nice piece, I would have left the oysters on it.
