Castware tankard shape number 1483.

I have been waiting patiently for this to arrive and thanks to a clever trademe seller who put it in a can it even survived delivery in a postbag.

It's always great to find a new shape and so much easier when it has a number on it. The number did not show up in the listing but I thought there might be one from a shadow on the seller's photo. The first three digits "148" are easy enough to read but the light must be altered to see the "3", which is pretty much unreadable in the photos I took, none of which is clear enough to bother posting.

I suspect that this is also one of what looks like three different sizes of mug in the modellers drawing titled "Franklin Mint". (Or at least a simplified version thereof.) If I'm correct on both counts, that it is the same shape and there are three sizes, then the other two may be numbers 1484 and 1485.

That is terribly exciting to see Jeremy !!!!
It looks fantastic in the Four Digit Gallery too :clap:
I go along with your thoughts that there will be two other sizes and as these would have been made late in Crown Lynn's life, there may not be many around.
