Incised to base  Kerryl  A106-L
It is unusual for 'A' Series pieces to carry a signature as here.

Kerryl 'B' Series; B3 & B4
As well as the 'A' Series, there is another early Kerryl numbering series that includes a few Remued shapes, the 'B' Series (see 'other Kerryl'). In the 'B' Series different sizes are given separate numbers rather than being distinguished by 's' and 'L' suffixes. A similar system had been used for the Pamela Series 30 years earlier.

Height; 16 cm to top of handle (like A106-s)

The 'A' Series is recorded in shape book 'A', starting at the back page (the front of the book being occupied by the Remued Later Series). Numbers run from A1 to A126. After a gap, however, numbers A101 to A122 are repeated with different shapes. Both versions are shown here.
