    What is this green bottle?

    No markings anywhere on it.

    It's still wet inside from being washed.

    These often had champagne in them, though I've seen them used for different kinds of wine as well.

    Of course! I should have realized that, but I was tired.... and I don't really drink champagne, or wine.

    Is that a pontil on the bottom, or just something about the way champagne bottles are made?

    That bottom style is called a "kick up".

    Interesting to know. I came across a bunch of these in different sizes so now I have a way to do some more research for that "kick up" feature. Some of them are way up in there (for lack of a better description, lol).

    I've always considered "Hock Wines" to be the thin tall nearly shoulderless wine bottles with a small or non-existent kickup.
