Description, including signature and date
The bottle contains several tools painted gold: a sawbuck and saw, axe and mallet. Several of the pieces are out of place. Dangling from the locked stopper are silk tassels which have shed strands on the tools. While the insides are not in the best shape, the stopper is grand with pictures inset on all four sides and then protected with little ovals of thin plastic. A piece of paper wrapped around the stopper in the neck of the bottle is signed "S. J. Harris Feb. 1905"
