Description, including signature and date
This bottle was made by Carl Worner, better known for his saloons and scenes. This one is not signed but looks almost exactly like one that is. It contains three crosses and figures made from thin wood like tongue depressors and clothed in wrapped thread. A thread-wrapped apple hangs from each arm of the central cross, and there are several Victorian paper cutouts of hands and flowers. The cutout at the bottom says "Health and Peace"
