Description, including signature and date
This bottle is a signed Adam Selick bottle with fans, birds, and crosses. It was probably made for D. H. and Mary Grove, whose names are written on either side of the crossbar through the stopper. Selick's signature is on one of the crosses (faintly visible at the bottom of the picture on the right). The decoration, as usual in blue ink or pencil, includes cross-hatching on some of the wooden pieces.

At the right are links to other known and suspected Selick bottles.
