Description, including signature and date
This bottle has a four-armed yarn winder wound with a heavier gauge perl cotton. Dangling from the four ends of the double cross piece at the top are painted ivory egg-shaped beads. The beads are threaded to open, and inside of each one is a pair of tiny ivory dice, about one eighth of an inch cube. And twisting around in the winder's threads is a black snake which seems to be made of wood, possibly a tendril from a vine.
