Description, including signature and date
The bottle contains a cross and tools, all whittled out of plain wood. The cross is decorated on one side with two pinwheels of wood, held in place by brass tacks; on the other side, a large saltire cross (X cross), also anchored with brass tacks. There is a tiny cross on top of the main cross. The carving is similar to another bottle on this website, but there is not enough evidence to say they were made by the same artist.
