Full Pictures and Close-ups: Sawbuck with Birds

Size Bottle Markings
7" tall, 2 1/2" across and 1 1/4" deep rectangular olive oil bottle, new; original bottle broken
Description, including signature and date
This bottle is not old, but the contents are perhaps from the 1930's or 1940's and were reassembled in a new bottle. It contains a sawbuck, ladder, saw, axe and mallet, but the best feature are the birds. A log sits on top of the sawbuck with two red birds on it. A second piece of wood hangs from the stopper and has two black birds on it. A medallion is glued to the front of the bird swing with the motto "In God We Trust" written on it.
