Description, including signature and date
The crucifixion scene in this small bottle is well carved. There is a ladder, hammer, spear and chalice, along with a fully carved Jesus. A little bird sits on top of the cross. There was at one time gold paint all around the top and neck of the bottle, but there is no stopper at all now.
