103(Early Series) TWO SHAPES
The onion-shaped vase below began production as PPP then continued as Remued after the PPP name was discontinued in 1934. The same number also appears on a single example of a chamberstick shape. Given the very short time during which PPP pieces were being allocated numbers, it seems unlikely that the chamberstick pre-dated the onion vase yet its glaze looks very early, more suggestive of PPP.
