A selection of un-numbered PPP shapes
(Not jugs. To avoid having this page too large, jug shapes are shown on a separate page - click here)

The PPP mark was used by Premier Pottery Preston from 1930 to 1934. For an account of PPP styles and history click here. Most PPP pieces were made before the introduction of shape numbering in 1934, and then the PPP name was dropped shortly after numbering began. Consequently, numbered PPP pieces are rare.

This page shows just a selection of un-numbered pieces. Un-numbered examples of shapes that did acquire a number are mostly catalogued with their numbered counterparts in the Early Series. Many pictures here, therefore, show shapes that were never assigned a number or for which a numbered example still awaits discovery.

Round perforations
This form of decoration is found on PPP pieces but absent from Remued Early Series pieces.
A similar feature did re-appear, however, in the 1950s 'gladioli vases' of the Later Series and 'A' Series / Kerryl.
