119(Early Series) TWO SHAPES
: This Early Series number has two shapes but it doesn't appear to be the usual situation where a second shape superseded the first. Rather, it seems that both shapes were in production at the same time, the suffix 'X' being applied to distinguish one from the other.
Why 119 'X' ? It is like the 119 shape but without the cut-off shown on the sketch below. Usually however, such a difference in shape would warrant a different shape number. So how did there come to be two shapes both numbered 119?
Here's a hypothesis.......After the Pamela Series was discontinued in 1934, many of its shapes were absorbed into the Remued Early Series and were allocated Early Series numbers as the numbering rose rapidly from about 140 to 200. In the case of this small jug however, there was already a small Remued jug at Early Series 119, similar except for the cut-off. Rather than assign a new number the Pamela 4 jug was slotted in at number 119 and called 119 X to distinguish it from the pre-existing 119.
