240  (Early Series)    TWO SHAPES
: This doesn't seem to be one of those cases where where a shape was discontinued and its number subsequently re-allocated to a new shape. Rather, it is an unusual situation where a vase version and jug version of the same shape appear with the same number. Perhaps it's just a stray anomaly - the vase version is well documented with numerous examples, whereas only a single jug has come to light.
