Special Comments: Nakara was a special line of glassware made by Monroe. Wilford Cohen, who wrote the book on Monroe, attended the 1988 AGSSSC Convention and felt this shaker was a Nakara shaker and he would liked to have placed in the Nakara section of his book. It was clearly the only one he had ever seen.
