86(Early Series) TWO SHAPES (?)
: There is a question-mark regarding the earlier of the two shapes - a PPP bowl with spiral handle. The later shape, a Remued lamp-base, is known only from a shape-book sketch.
86(or 98?)(Early Series; PPP) Small globe-shaped bowl with spiral handle.
This PPP pot poses a couple of puzzles -
* Is the incised number 86, or 98? Depending on which way up it is read, it could equally be either. Only this single example is recorded.
* Several pieces of apparently the same size and shape (without the spiral) are recorded numbered 57 and 77. For a side-by-side comparison of all three see Early Series 77 (bottom of page). The explanation is unknown.
