Do these shapes appear in other series?  No - (none recorded) although there are other small jugs that are somewhat similar.

Baitz was (and is) a well-known brand of liqueurs.

Every piece recorded in the image database is un-numbered.

Allan & Myrtle James Collection
'Glass No.1' shape, the three above.

This particular page of shape book 'B' is a bit of a mess. Later Series 160 is a jug, in different sizes. The glasses have been added piecemeal in whatever unused space was available on the page. The shape books show three sizes of jugs, numbered 1,2 and 3; and four styles of glasses as pictured (labelled "cheap"!).

The table headed "Turning" shows hourly rates of production. Allan James reckoned on throwing 48 jugs per hour, by hand, just 1 minute and 12 seconds per jug.
