172  (Early Series)    Cylindrical jugs.
Does this shape appear in other series?  Yes - 172/5M is like  Pamela Series 18
There are also numerous early un-numbered examples including commemorative pieces and pieces with completely unmarked bases. Some un-numbered examples are recorded dated 1933.  A copy of the shape is also known to have been made in Japan, presumably being considered an item that would sell in the Australian market.

According to the shape book there were four sizes, denoted by inch suffixes 5, 6, 7, and 13.  Only 172/5 and 172/6 are yet recorded in the image database. Both were produced with and without applied decoration. Decorated pieces were suffixed 'M' although a few examples are recorded with no 'M'.

Height;  12.5 - 13 cm.

Height;  15 - 17 cm.
