Description, including signature and date

This most wonderful Worner bottle has a bakery on two levels: the women are shopping on the top while the bakers are baking on the bottom. It is signed "Made by Carl Worner Backer und Conditor" which means "bread baker and cake baker" in German. And he made it for a man with a saloon in Aurora, IL, a suburb of Chicago. This is the only bottle where Worner indicates a profession, and the only one known to have been made for somebody who did not do what is pictured in the bottle.
