Height Bottle Markings

9 1/2" thick, wide flask-shaped bottle, flat on front and back, perhaps a fifth; no markings.
Description, including signature and date

This bottle contains a blacksmith shop, built to fit tightly within the shape of the tapered bottle. A blacksmith is working on a horseshoe at his anvil, and tools lie around him on the floor. A fireplace and chimney are carved in great detail, and three horseshoes hang on the wall. Most of the wood is natural, but the chimney, the blacksmith's hair and shirt are colored. A sign over the shop reads "The Village Blacksmith." The stopper is held in place by a horseshoe. The bottle was found in Kansas City.
