Does this shape appear in other series?   No, not exactly -  (none recorded) although there are lidded pots that are somewhat similar eg Later Series 75. There are also un-numbered PPP examples.

An ad from 'Table Talk' magazine, Melbourne, dating from November 1932 which was before shape-numbering or the Remued name had been introduced.

The ad mentions two sizes for this honey pot shape but the only size yet recorded is the one pictured above.
