Height Bottle Markings Description, including signature and date
8 1/2" round; the current bottle is a replacement bottle after the original broke. The original was marked 500 ml on the bottom.

A gold and silver painted cross hung with a red yarn tassle and a whittled lantern stands in the center of three crossed pieces at the base, out of which come tools or stylized "trees". The tools are also painted gold and silver. A cut-out black and white engraving of Christ is hanging on the cross, and two weeping women, along with an angel, are at the base of the cross. The date "20-3-1933" is written on a cardboard sign at the bottom.

This picture was taken after the original bottle broke and before it was reassembled in a newer bottle.
