Description, including signature and date
This bottle supposedly was made in Portugal. There are remnants of a paper label around the neck with names on it, but no place or date. The carving is outstanding on the figure of Jesus, and the painting is colorful. The two figures at the foot of the cross have silk flowers on their heads. The stopper is a big cupola.
