I would like to know what shape you are asking about. I have about 22 names of pontil marks and pictures of many; I am trying to put together for a post on my homepage. RED Matthews <bottlemtsteries@yahoo.com>

I think your champagne bottle was made in a turn mold, and is hard to put a date on it. It could be as early as 1860.

I don't know if this information helps at all.I've included a drawing which needless to say is not to scale. Please excuse my drawing skills I hope it helps. Anthony
I think I saw that same thing flying low over southern California back in the 60's!

Is that you Jack!!!! I thought that was the guy from the movie "Back to the Future." What a great photo! Very happy to have a face with the name. Thanks for sharing.
It looks like you just took a swig from that bottle!

This bottle is definitely from the 1840 - 1860 period and more than likely a French Champagne bottle as the neck is typical of French Cognac bottles being snapped off and with the applied ring of glass around it.
