Description, including signature and date
This exquisite bottle was created by Daniel Rose, a famous whittler in his day from Johnstown, PA (died 1921). He was named "Whittler of the Year" in 1898 (by whom is not known) and was written up in The Christian Monitor in 1926. This bottle was a design he made many times: a large fan and several small ones, rabbits and squirrels, and GOD IS LOVE across the front. He signed this bottle "Daniel Rose Johnstown, Pa." and dated it Sept. 21, 1917.
