Special Comments: This shaker is a variant of the "Necklace Bulbous" shaker shown in Lechner II, pg. 122-1. The Lechner II shaker does not have the scrolls on the body and possibly does not have the ring of beads. Lechner II attributed the shaker to C.F. Monroe, but was uncertain about this variant.
