Height Bottle Markings Description, including signature and date
8 3/4" round apothecary-type bottle with seams going the full height of the bottle The carving in this bottle is rather crude and unpainted. A fairly plain cross holds a carved figure of Christ with nails through the hands and feet. Standing on the cross arms are two angels. Two more are climbing a ladder up the back of the cross, and two more are standing on the bottom supports of the cross. The bottle was found in Iowa.
