Special Comments: Heacock named this pattern and shows a syrup in it, see Heacock-3, pg. 49, Fig. 364. Gougeon in his Milk Glass/Pattern Glass book shows this shaker and several other pieces in this pattern. The pattern resembles somewhat the Double Rib pattern named by Milliard in his book Opaque Glass, Pl. 167-1 (with this Double Rib pattern also shown in Heacock-3, pg. 39, Fig. 367). The similarity of these two patterns apparently confused the submitter who thought the pattern was Double Rib, which was the original name used by the Club. (To compound the issue further, Lechner decided, for an unknown reason, to changed the name of the "Milliard" shaker to Rib, Double, see Lechner II, pg. 249-3.)
