Description, including signature and date
This bottle is almost identical to three other bottles on this website, but it is a smaller bottle than the others. It contains a frame structure with fans on two levels; the fans are woven with ribbons and decorated with painted dots. On each level are two silk roses. The supports of the frame are wound in silver thread. This bottle was found at a garage sale on an Indian reservation in western New York state, and the seller was sure it was made by a Native American, but there is no evidence it was. One of the other bottles came from the same area and one is in a bottle from Wyeth Pharmaceuticals in Philadelphia.

Links to the others: Fans and Roses in Square Bottle, Fans in Tall Round Bottle, Fans in Square Bottle and Green Dots, Fans in Oval Bottle from Wyeth & Co, and Fans in Square Bottle without Roses.

Three others which have many similar characteristics (fans, dots, ribbons, chip-carved stopper bars) are a Decanter-Style Bottle with Fans, Fans with Flowers and Flags, and Fans with Tassels.
