Special Comments: Peterson apparently assigned the name Intaglio Swirl to this shaker and Lechner I continued with that name and had the correct attribution of "McKee Glass Company". However, in Lechner II, there is an incorrect attribution to McKee and Brothers which did not exist in 1908! (The name changed in 1904.) Also, Lechner II decided to change the name of the shaker to Swirl, Intaglio without explaining the change, but he may have found the OMN - not clear?
