274 (?)  (Early Series)   Small jug with ribbed bulbous base and straight throat.

Does this shape appear in other series?   No, but it appears elsewhere in the Early Series as Early Series 174 - see below.

Height; 9.5 - 10 cm








Two examples are recorded, both clearly and unmistakably incised 274. The shape, however, is the same as Early Series 174 which raises the suspicion that 274 might be just an error made while incising numbers.
Both inscriptions are in the same handwriting and so were quite possibly done at the same time. One piece also has 174 added in pencil, in different handwriting, presumably a correction made before it left the pottery.
