Special Comments: The Cohen references on pg. 205 show shakers with floral designs, but with different decorations and tops. They was much difference in the prices. Lechner shows two shakers. The one on page 124-1 with HP he called Ring Neck, Wavecrest; the one on page 226-4 was made by a tranfer process and he called it Flared Base, Wave Crest. He listed it in his "Potpourri" chapter. Submitter believed this was same shaker as shown in Warman, Milk Glass Addenda, Pl. 130-B, Fig. B, but that shaker is listed by Warman as 3-1/2" tall, which is 3/4" taller than this shaker.
