|Description, including signature and date|
This Carl Worner saloon is a little different from most of the others. It has a wonderful painting over the bar showing a rustic lake, trees and deer or cattle. The bar is named "Jim Cave." The patron standing at the bar is wearing a yellow straw hat, and the patron at the table is facing front.
The bottle lacked the more usual Carl Worner wooden stopper. It was "corked" with a tight wad of newspaper which was from the Dunkirk, N.Y., Evening Observer of Thursday, June __, 1907. Dunkirk, NY, is on the shore of Lake Erie, a bit south of Buffalo, in Chautauqua Co. There is a "missing man" and the instruction to find him on a very plain painted piece at the bottom . The bottle is not signed by Worner.
The bottle was part of the Strong Museum (Rochester NY)'s collection but was recently deaccessioned at auction.
