174  (Later Series)   Chamberstick & ashtray

Does this shape appear in other series?  Yes - 'A' Series /Kerryl A117, although no example is recorded.
Early Series 434 is similar but lacks the cigarette grooves.

This shape is uncommon, probably reflecting small production - by the late 1940s when it was introduced, candlesticks were no longer the standard household item they once had been, particularly chamberstick models such as this. Nevertheless, according to a shape-book entry it did re-appear a decade or more later, in the Kerryl range. There are also examples that are un-numbered and unsigned but clearly Remued Later Series.

Dimensions; height 5 - 6 cm, diameter 10 - 11 cm.
