Description, including signature and date
This bottle contains a frame-like structure with a triple fan in the frame and a single fan with four silk roses on top. The fans are decorated with red and blue paint, and the sides of the frame are wound with heavy silver thread. The same thread is woven into the fans as well. On the bottom of the bottle is a piece of brocade fabric. Several bottles by the same artist are on this website. One was found on an Indian reservation in western New York state, and another came from the same area.One is in a bottle from Wyeth Pharmaceuticals in Philadelphia.

Links to the others: Fans and Roses in Square Bottle, Fans in Smaller Square Bottle, Fans in Square Bottle and Green Dots, Fans in Oval Bottle from Wyeth & Co, and Fans in Square Bottle without Roses.

Three others which have many similar characteristics (fans, dots, ribbons, chip-carved stopper bars) are a Decanter-Style Bottle with Fans, Fans with Flowers and Flags, and Fans with Tassels.
