Hello, I recently picked up this bottle. I haven’t seen one quite like it before so was hoping someone might know what it was. It has a beautiful light olive green color and it is full of bubbles. The bottom does appear to be pontiled. It also has six sides. Thoughts?

Repro/decorator bottle, I'm afraid.
I have to agree its a repro, because I've seen several of that same one for sale in the $20-$30 dollar price range. They are all a little too crisp and minty and the style of lip just isn't so consistent with what I know to be 18th and early 19th century pontil bottles(which usually tend to have a lot of broad flattened or rolled style lips), so I avoided them. Hey, if you didn't pay too much for it, looks like a nice handmade piece at least.

I tend to trust just what comes out of the ground, but this one mighta fooled me with its wonkiness.

Possibly blown at the modern glass blowing operation in Jamestown VA. Looks a lot like the glass items that they blow (blew?) there.
