Happy Friday Everyone,

I'm sharing a bottle I purchased a little while back.  It was painted in 1971, as far as I can tell.  I don't know what the rest of the characters say, can anybody help with the translation?  Also, I'm curious about the seals, can anybody identify those?
And, if it's painted in 1971, is it considered a cultural revolution bottle?  I bought it because I like the village scene.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

Have a great weekend,

Rube.

Dear Rube,

     I can't help with the seals or inscriptions, but it looks like a very nice bottle.
Congratulations,
Shabbat Shalom,
Joey

Dear Rube,

Nice bottle, congratulations! Itís written there 秋高氣爽 which means ďAn invigorating and refreshing autumnĒ. Dated year of Xinhai which could either be 1911 or 1971. I tend to think it is 1971.

Best,
Samson

Joey and Samson,
Thanks for your comments, and help with translation!  Invigorating Autumn, fantastic, my favorite season! Another allure to the bottle was the written year, a vintage year, I might add.

Cheers,

Rube.
