Description, including signature and date
This bottle contains a cross above two levels of crossed supports from which dangle white carved wooden tassles with red tips. A rope surrounds the central shaft between the two levels. Sitting on all of the supports are potted "plants" with silk and dried flowers. The carved Jesus and the tools (ladder, spears, etc.) are painted white. Jesus is wearing a whittled crown. The initials L. S. F. are painted in script in red paint on the lowest crossed beams.
