From an ad for Edments in the "West Australian", October 1939. The ad doesn't specify Remued, but it does say 'Australian made' and the Edments chain of gift shops is known to have stocked Remued. It closely resembles a shape by Bendigo Pottery however - also Australian - which definitely did come with a flower-frog as illustrated. Either way, it raises the interesting question - did Remued Early Series 55 ever have such a flower-frog?
