This is a wonderful patriotic scene of Uncle Sam standing on a platform with his arm raised in a salute. The base is made from 3 pieces of wood painted red across the bottom of the bottle. On the front sign it say "Uncle Sam" On the back side it has "Steve Moseley 2008 St. Louis," which is the name of the artist, the year the bottle is made and where it was made. Coming up from the base on each side are square posts painted like an American flag with red and white stripes 3/4 the way up the posts and the final 1/4 painted blue with white stars. Between the square posts and attached at the top are 2 white stripes of wood coming toward the center of the base making a letter "V" for victory. A small red platform is suspended in the bottom part of this "V" and standing on this platform is Uncle Sam. He is carved from wood and painted in a classic Uncle Sam costume with white shoes, red and white vertically striped pants and a blue coat with gold buttons. His left arm is at his side and he is holding a small American flag. His right arm is raised in a salute. He has a white beard and a hat with a white brim, blue around the base of the hat, and red and white strips up the side of the hat. The bottle is sealed with a wooden shaft with a rich dark turned top. On the outside of the bottle is a brown square attached to the shaft. This bottle is was inspired and patterned, with some changes, after Bottle ID 370.
