Description, including signature and date

This typical Worner saloon bottle is neither signed nor dated and has the usual bartender, cigars, and bar patrons. It also has crossed American flags on top, a feature of many of his bottles, and the "Find the Missing Man" sign. What is rare, but not unprecedented, is that the saloon was operated by a woman, Pearl Carpenter. A Pearl Carpenter, age 40, was running a hotel in Elmyra Heights, NY, in the 1920 census. The bottle probably dates from after 1910.
