Crucifix and Cross Bottles
Full pictures and close-ups

Height Bottle Markings Description, including signature and date
11" round liquor bottle; stamped in the glass: "Kinsey the Genial Gin 4/5 qt. Federal Law forbids reuse of this bottle" This three-cross construction is submersed in a light yellow-brown liquid, lighter than the color of whisky. It has been suggested that putting the scene of the crucifixion in "liquor" symbolizes the triumph of the Cross over the evil of drinking. The condition of the wood appears perfect.
