Special Comments: This was Northwood's #317 Jewel (OMN). However, often called "Threaded Swirl". The shaker is shown in Lechner II, pg. 173-4b. He also shows an opalescent version of the is shaker (pg. 173-4a) and called it "Opalescent Swirl", but Heacock II, pg. 46, had basically used this name for swirl pattern made by Hobbs and other. Heacock called the opalescent swirl version of this shaker "Swirl Opal Jewel", see Heacock and Elmore, pg. 108, which show the shaker. The Jewel shaker with the swirl in the opposite direction is shown in Lechner III, pg. 139-3.
