Oval Bottle Identification

Can you help us to learn more about this oval-based “bastard” bottles?

We’ve recently contacted the Histarch Listserv and received some great feedback, but we are hoping to learn even more about this unique bottle. Have you come across oval bottles in your work? Where did they come from? What did you learn about them? We would love any information you can provide.
