The shape books also list a small item titled 'Holder'. There is no sketch and no numbered example of the holder is known. Does anybody have one? - please contact us! (A likely example, un-numbered, is shown below)
Diameter of ashtray; 8.5 - 9 cm
Shape book 'B'
No numbered example of the holder is recorded. It is known only from these shape-book entries, which have no sketch. Book 'A' shows no separate number, book 'B' shows 55H.
Height; from shape book, about 4.5 - 5 cm.
Cigarette grooves in different configurations.
Un-numbered. Height; 4.5 cm.
The 55 ashtray is like the Early Series 219 ashtray, which too has a matching cigarette holder . The pieces pictured at right resemble the 219 holder but display typical Later Series glazes and a later-pattern sticker (no 'Australia'). It is therefore tempting to identify them as the elusive Later Series 55 'holder'.
