Vintage Western Glass Bottle Whimsey
This is a well constructed bottle Whimsey made in a Half Pint Clear Glass Bottle. The bottle has flat sides and the top is sealed with a hand carved wooden stopper. The stopper has been carved with a cross shape to keep the bottle from being opened.
Size: 7-3/4 Inches Tall x 3 Inches Wide x 1-1/2 Inches Deep
The Whimsey fills the bottle with a saw made of wood and metal. Imprinted by hand in ink or pencil are the notations of TEMP - 30 - MARCH -21 - 1976 - HELENA - MONT on one side of the Whimsy and on the other side - TEMP - 30 - SAMBO - THE - HOBO - HELENA - MONT There is a loose penny at the bottom of the bottle. The bottle itself is imprinted HALF PINT on the lower portion of one of the flat sides and on the bottom of the bottle is imprinted LIQUOR BOTTLE and some numbers. The imprints are from the manufacturer of the bottle and not part of the Whimsy or not made by whoever constructed the Whimsey.
Condition: Very Good to Excellent
Weight: 11 Oz's.
I would venture to guess this is a one of a kind type of Whimsey. Found in the rural Montana.
