Description, including signature and date
The cross and tools in this bottle are exceptionally well carved and fit together. The rungs of the ladder are inset in the poles, and the axe blade is buried in a cut in the upright piece of the cross. It is decorated in pencil: the word "cross" in arc-shaped designs, and the date "July 1944" on the cross piece. The word "July" is also written on the top of the cross. A heart with the word "Love" is lying at the foot of the cross. Not signed or dated; found in North Carolina.
