Height Bottle Markings Description, including signature and date
7 1/4" round bottle, screw top This beautifully carved crucifix is very spare and modern. Christ is wearing a crown of thorns and a purple satin loincloth. Above his head is a paper halo and a sign carefully lettered in ink "Jesus King of the Jews." Above that is another sign with tiny letters: "As ye would have others do unto you, do ye also unto them.". At Jesus's feet is an open book; three carved flowers decorate the base of the cross. It is signed on the bottom: "Made by the Caveman July 10 1934" There are two other Caveman crucifix bottles on this website: Two and Three
