Description, including signature and date

This two sided bottle contains two shrines build mostly from religious cards on a wooden substructure. Both sides are trimmed with bits of lace and decorated with red and blue paint.

The crucifixion side has pictures of the Madonna and child, and of two unidentified saints; it has several artificial flowers as well. Behind the flowers is painted the date 1902.

The other side has a picture of the Madonna and child, some tools painted gold, and two "trees".
