Height Bottle Markings

11" tall, 4" wide, 2 1/2" deep rectangular bottle
Description, including signature and date

This Worner saloon bottle was made for Joe Birkey's saloon on Western Ave. in Blue Island, IL, a suburb of Chicago. The sign over the bar reads "Joe Birke Saloon," and it features the usual bartender and two toasting customers, plus the four pine trees. There is a missing man below the floor (right), but no sign with "Find the Missing Man." In design and complexity, this is almost exactly like the John Neubauer saloon.
