Height Bottle Markings Description, including signature and date
12 " rounded rectangle bottle, not original to the contents This bottle has three fairly plain white crosses and a few tools, all decorated with pieces of wood painted a pale red. The "INRI" over the cross is beautifully lettered, and one of the small crosses has an upside-down money bag on it with "30." A red rooster on a long pole stands in front. The bottle was found during excavation of a building site, buried in the ground. A tree root had broken the original bottle, and the person who found it reassembled the crosses in a newer liquor bottle.
