Special Comments: Same shaker as above shown in Lechner II, pg. 71-2, but named Block, Duncans. Duncan made several different versions of square block patterns. This is clearly shown in Bredehoft et al. It was mentioned by Heacock in Book 7: Ruby-Stained Glass From A to Z and he indicates manufacturing was continued by U.S. Glass after the merger with Duncan.
