Crosses and Crucifix Bottles

Full Pictures and Close-ups: Triple Crucifix in Old Wavy Bottle

Height Bottle Markings
13 1/4" tall (includes 2" carved stopper), 2 7/8" in diameter 3-part mold with applied lip; "W & A. Gilbey L°" and "21" embossed on the bottom. The glass is extremely wavy.
Description, including signature and date
This bottle was found in England, and the bottle itself is probably English, but the "JNRJ" sign on the cross suggests the maker was not a native of England (all other known "JNRJ" bottles came from central Europe). The crosses and figures are crudely carved with simple faces. There is shredded material on the bottom, and it has a very nice decorative stopper. It is a difficult bottle to photograph.
