Creased Neck, Bulbous
Creased Neck, Bulbous

Maker: Mt. Washington/Pairpoint Corporation
Reference(s): For some reason(?), the Club's recommended name for this shaker was "Plain Jane". Lechner II, pg. 134-1 shows a pair of shakers with the same "Plain Jane" shape, but with a cabin in the snow scene. He attributed the shakers to Mt Washington. He named the shakers "Creased Neck, Bulbous" after the shaker's characteristic neck indentation and body shape. However, neither the shaker shape or the decorations are shown amongst the many shakers in Betty Sisk's Mount Washington Art Glass book. Are these Mt. Washington/Pairpoint shakers? Discussed below in the Special Comments section is a definite mis-attribution to Mt. Washington of another "cabin in snow", creased neck shaker. To Lechner's credit he did clearly correct his mistake.
Description: A slightly bulbous shaker with a major indentation, crease, just below a thick ring neck. Has disc foot.
Decoration: Delicate floral decor with several five pedal, small blue flowers on vine with many leaves.
Colors Known: Opalware.
Size: 2-1/2" tall; 2" max. body dia.; 1-1/4: base dia.

Special Comments: In Lechner I, pg. 66 and 67-2 a cylindrical, cabin in snow shaker with a creased neck was named "Cabin in the Snow". However, as explained in Lechner III, pg. 34-1, the shaker is now thought to have been maded by Boston and Sandwich Glass Company.
