401 (Early Series)    Small dimpled pot, wide mouth with collar, no flare.

Does this shape appear in other series?   No -  Early Series 67 is rather similar but lacks the dimpled sides of 401.
There are also un-numbered pieces similar to 401/3 but slightly smaller.

Three numbered sizes are recorded, with inch suffixes 3, 4 and 5.

Heidelberg Road, Alphington Vic.

The Collector, Murrumbeena, Vic
Un-numbered and unsigned. Height; 6.3 - 6.7 cm; slightly smaller than the numbered 401/3 pieces.
Several examples are recorded with nickel-plated lids as shown, suggesting that many (perhaps all?) were originally sold with a lid. Premier did not make metal lids so they must have either bought them in, or they produced these pots for a third party to market as lidded sugarbowls.
