401(Early Series) Small dimpled pot, wide mouth with collar, no flare.
Does this shape appear in other series? No - Early Series 67 is similar but lacks the dimpled sides of 401.
There are also un-numbered pieces like 401/3 but very slightly smaller.
Three numbered sizes are recorded, with inch suffixes 3, 4 and 5.

Height; 11 - 11.5 cm.

Un-numbered and unsigned. Height; 6.3 - 6.7 cm; slightly smaller than the numbered 401/3 pieces. At least two examples are recorded with identical silver-plated lids, raising the possibility that perhaps many (or all?) such pots were originally sold with a lid. Premier certainly did not make metal lids but presumably either bought them in, or produced pots like these for a third party to market as lidded sugarbowls.
