336  (Early Series)   Ashtray, leaf pattern.
:
Does this shape appear in other series?   Perhaps -  A 'Leaf dish' is listed in the potter's notebook for
Later Series 141, but without sketch and with no known example.

A surviving carbon-copy of an order document lists 336 as "Ash tray". The document is dated November 1940. Unlike most Remued pieces, these are press-moulded.

Dimensions; 16 cm long, 8.5 cm wide.

The first two pieces are believed to have come from the estate of Allan James, the potter responsible for most Remued pottery. After the closure of Premier he produced Kerryl pottery and initially used numbering systems similar to Premier. The numbering series of most interest to Remued collectors is the 'A' Series, but there are also some shape-book sketches of an 'M' Series. One of those sketches - M30 - looks rather like the pictures above, although no gumnuts appear in the sketch.
No example of a leaf dish marked Kerryl or M30 is recorded however.


An un-numbered example (or possibly the number has been obliterated by grinding).
