54  (Early Series, PPP and Remued)    Jugs.

Does this shape appear in other series?  No, not exactly -  54 L is similar to Early Series 133 / Later Series 56, but wider.

This is a shape that began as PPP and continued on as Remued when the PPP name was discontinued in 1934.

Three size variants are recorded; 54;  54/8; and 54/10 or 54 L. The smallest (54 or 54 s - see shape book below) is recorded only as PPP.  54/8 is recorded only as Remued. The largest size is recorded as 54/10 (PPP only) or 54 L (Remued only).

Height; 11 - 11.5 cm.   Stamped PPP.

This very early shape book shows the plain 54 size as 54/s but no example marked 54/s is recorded.
In a later shape book (Book 'E') 54/s does not appear.
It can be seen that the 54/8 size here was first written 54/M then overwritten with an '8'.
54/10 is not shown. It appears as 54 L only.
