Description, including signature and date
This half pint flask contains a cross, a few tools, and two figures, a man and a woman. The cross and figures are decorated in pencil. This bottle was made by the same artist as a very similar one dated 1944, shown on the previous page of thumbnails. This one was found filled with whiskey and with many of the pieces loose and floating in the bottle. When the whiskey was removed, the pencil decorations become evident. It is dated Aug. 21 1928, and the word "Cross" is written on the cross.
