Is the 41 at the bottom the date code like with soda bottles meaning 1941?
They're designed to be able to use either a crown cap or a cork held down by wire. It's a design specifically intended for the extra pressure from sparkling wine. They're still the standard top for sparkling wine bottles today, mostly for use with corks, although you do see crown caps used from time to time, especially for sparkling apple juice.Some of those later wine bottles have really weird tops. Definitely a circa 1960-1970 bottle.
