Description, including signature and date
The carving in this bottle is not fine, and the bottom of the bottle is stuffed with old paper to support the cross. There is an ink on paper face of Christ on the cross, and a paper banner with "J.N.R.J." on top. There are three figures at the bottom of the cross, hardly more detailed than clothespin figures. A skull rests at the foot of the cross.
