Crucifix and Cross Bottles
Full pictures and close-ups

Height Bottle Markings Description, including signature and date
8" rectangle, screw top; 650 ml on bottom The cross in this bottle is very plain, and the tools are limited to a hammer, ladder and a saw. The notable feature of this bottle is its inscription "Assent. has 7 linhas" and the seven different colored satin ribbons draped over the cross. My limited knowledge of languages makes me think of Portuguese with the word "linhas", but I really have no clue as to this translation and meaning. The bottle was found in the north east U.S., New York or Connecticut.
