Description, including signature and date
This contents of this bottle are very similar to several other bottles on this website and was surely made by the same artist. It contains a structure with two levels, each supporting a fan with blue painted dots, pink and white ribbon, and silver thread. On the upper level are two pink silk roses, and a piece of brocade fabric lines the bottom. One of the other bottles was found at a yard sale on an Indian reservation in western New York, and this one also came from that area. One is in a bottle from Wyeth Pharmaceuticals in Philadelphia.

Links to the others: Fans and Roses in Round 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.
