Ev, this is the stacking hotel saucer, yet to take its place in the gallery.

Thanks Jeremy, I've been meaning to take a pic of one of mine. It has a similar look to a Forma saucer right?

It's similar in that they both have the upturned edge, but this is more shapely in the middle as one footring sits within the well and one outside it, locking it in place.

Ev, I'm adding the 4634 4D demi-saucer too.
This is effectively the same shape as the Tango 734 in the gallery but the dates are correct for the numbers:
The Tango is 1966.
4634 was introduced 1968.
This RNZAF is 1971.

I know the gallery pics are small so a picture of front and back of saucers is out of the question, but I'm wondering about the wisdom of adding "replies" to the individual gallery number pages. I've found that in identifying saucers much of the info is on the back, not just the date but footring size and type.

For the vit demi-saucer I have identified two completely different shapes (by way of an upgrade) that do not coincide with the change from 3D to 4D number.

Sometime things are not spelled out that maybe some think obvious and others miss entirely.

It is not unusual for earthenware saucers to have vitrified counterparts, sometimes produced from the same model, but varying as the nature of the manufacturing process determines.

The original demitasse saucers, EW vs vit, were effectively the same shape.
So too the coupe saucers for EW and vit tulips.

The Forma saucer is effectively the same shape as the hotel stacking saucer (4624). The stacking saucer is smaller (as is usually the case wrt EW), has a rolled edge, and a slightly better defined integral foot ring, but otherwise their profiles are the same.

Both were designed with a cupwell to seat a double-footring cup which gives added stability.

I would have mentioned this earlier, had I possessed a Forma saucer, but that didn't happen until this week.
