Description, including signature and date
This very old crucifixion scene bottle was found in Missouri. The cross and tools are painted gold, and a sign with "INRI" hangs over the head of a carved figure of Jesus. The figure is very similar to a bottle made by W. H.(?) Poole of Reading, PA, the color scheme is the same, but this bottle lacks all the glitter.
