.545. for gallery.

I have had this flower pot in my cupboard for years and never gave it a thought.
I always assumed that the 545 is just shorter than the 546 but a similar shape. This proves again to check, check, check and not assume anything.

Wow!!!! I've never seen that one before either. It's hard to tell what it looks like from the Museum photo, but the numbers tell us exactly what shape it is. Fantastic and thank you so much haselnuss :clap:

Mine is worse Kat, though I never thought of repainting it.  Salisbury would have painted these flower pots.

Kat, Yours is still lovely with it's on character and considering the age. I wouldn't wash of the green because it is a rare colour for these pots.

I have had my 545 displayed next to the 529's and just kept overlooking it because I thought that it must be a smaller version of them.

Here it is in the middle of the second shelf from the bottom partly hidden by the door frame.

There is a green, pink, black, red, dark red, lilac 529.

And EV's pot is a bright green. So we have soft and bright green.

To me Salisbury colours are just as exciting to find as the Crown Lynn ones.
