52  (Early Series; PPP)   Small flask, bulbous body, with one spiral handle.

Does this shape appear in other series?   No (none recorded). The same body shape however appears with no handle as Early Series 20; and with two amphora-style handles as Early Series 30
Early Series / PPP 76 is similar but with a longer neck.

Decorative spirals like this are almost entirely confined to the PPP range. For more examples click here.

Height; 9 - 10 cm







Collection; Jeremy Zarifopoulos
Bases stamped PPP, incised 52
Un-numbered, stamped PPP


52 (?) (Early Series)   Small bulbous pot with collar lip.

Does this shape appear in other series?    Yes -  Later Series 44
Early Series 67 is also similar.
Only a single example is recorded marked 52, which raises the possibility that the number might be a mistake and should be 44 or 67. (Mistakes did happen - see the Pitfalls page.)

Height; 7.5 cm
