Shape 164 is it the rabbit & basket or is it the loving cup?

In the Portage collection the loving cup has the number 164. In the gallery it is the rabbit with basket.

Maybe the loving cup has a handpotted number?
I see they don't go that high in the gallery,
and I think the final product was slipcast but who knows.

The posting of the Portage files will doubtless turn up many such puzzles.

The loving cups were all numbered from 1 to around 1,000.
These were handpotted and are marked as such.
The 164 rabbit is in the castware records.

That is what I thought. Another point to add to the list of hikups Ev.

The number is not a handpotted number, but the number of the cup made, e.g this one is number 164 of the 1000 made. I wonder how many there are still around? I have a couple.
