Description, including signature and date

This is the only bottle known to have been made by a woman. It is signed Lisa Rauter on the outside of the stopper and was made in about 1988; Ms. Rauter lives in Cincinnati. The bottle contains a tree with several branches. On the roots are mushrooms and a snake. Climbing the trunk are a cat and a snail, and on one branch is an owl, leaf and dangling acorn; on another is a bird's nest and egg. The carving is quite detailed.
