Description, including signature and date
This bottle contains a cross with a paper cutout of Christ on the cross and several paper cutouts at the bottle, probably the "Three Maries" (the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mary Magdelene and Mary, mother of James). A paper cutout of roses is glued on the top of the cross, over the INRI. There are a few tools, two spangum moss trees, and a sacred heart button with ESPOIR ET SANTE on it (Hope and Health in French). The bottle came from Germany.
