Incised 196/7M Remued Hand Made 1934.
196 is the highest number yet recorded that shows a date.These pieces demonstrate that Early Series numbering reached at least as high as 196 during its first year, 1934. (A higher number however, Early Series 201, can be linked to 1934 despite  having no numbered example recorded.)
Base inscriptions like this - with a shape-number and a date - are quite rare, and of great value in piecing together the history of the Remued range. If you have any Remued piece with such an inscription we'd be delighted to hear from you.     Contact us.
