Glass bottle featuring pictures of saints
Glass bottle, rectangular with stopper covered in gold fabric, highly decorated with pictures of saints painted on three sides.
On one side of this bottle is a standing saintly figure with his hand raised in blessing, a bird (possibly a dove) overhead. Also featured are a praying figure on his knees and a winged angel or cherub. The date on the reverse, "A.D. 1667" gives us a clue as to the date of this bottle's manufacture and decoration.
