Description, including signature and date
This beautiful and delicate little bottle was found in poor repair with many pieces out of the bottle. Remarkably, none were missing and it was reassembled. Three carved bodies on crosses, each wear a loincloth made of very thin cellulose, like tape without the glue. Decoration in pencil includes the faces, a sign with INRI above Christ's cross, and details on the rooster.

Below is a picture of the bottle before it was fixed.
