: This is one of those numbers that were used for two different shapes at different times during the Early Series years. Presumably one shape was discontinued and the number subsequently re-allocated to a new shape.
Un-numbered and unsigned; base completely unmarked. This jug surely came from Premier Pottery but the sticker is not Remued. It reads 'Ascot artware'.
Did a retailer apply their own brand labels to pieces supplied by Premier? If so the pieces must have been ordered unmarked. Or did Premier make to order under the ' Ascot' label? The only other logical possibility - a copy, not made by Premier - seems very unlikely. Attempts at copying Remued's characteristic drip-glazing have never been good enough to pass close scrutiny; see under 'Imitations & Fakes' on the 'Pitfalls' page.
It raises the question - did other unmarked pieces, now confidently identified as Remued, once have an 'Ascot' sticker?
At right; another 146-shaped jug, un-numbered, unsigned, no sticker.
Remued? .... or Ascot?
A couple of examples are recorded mistakenly incised 147
