15 (Later Series)    Wall pocket vase, flattened conical shape
:
Does this shape appear in other series?  Yes - Early Series 209;   'A' Series / Kerryl A101 and A102.

There were three size variants, with inch suffixes 6, 8 and 10. There were also variants with applied decoration.

This wall pocket is notable as being the only item where gumleaves - so characteristic of the Early Series - continued into the Later Series.

Shape book 'A' shows a second set of details headed 'Sydney'; presumably a specific order, for 8 inch and 10 inch varieties only, each with slightly different dimensions from standard.
These are not present in shape book 'B' which is older than book 'A'.
