Special Comments: The Club's original name for this shaker was Wide Waist, Northwood. Could this shaker have been made in the Wide Waist Mold by Northwood? The submitter thought so. However, the so-called Wide Waist Mold appears to have been used to make sugar shakers just in several opalescent patterns - see Heacock 9, pg.82, Fig. 12; pg. 83, Fig. 24; and pg. 90, Fig. 140. In addition, the Wide Waist Mold made shakers which were about 4" high, not 3". Thirdly, there is no evidence Northwood used this shape to make salt shakers. Thirdly, the salt shakers made in the patterns in which the sugar shakers were made have distinctly different shapes than the sugar shakers. In addition, Northwood was known for making rather fancy patterns and there is no evidence that plain opalware patterns were made.
