Description, including signature and date
This large-scale crucifixion scene was made by Carl Worner, but it is not signed or dated. The crosses are decorated only with pencil drawings and bits of tin foil. There is the cross of Jesus in the middle and the two thieves hang on either side. There are tools and a rooster. Compare the figures to the other known Worner religious bottles: one signed "Hanau a Main", one in bottle from Norwalk CT, and one signed and dated 1890
