I seem to have had a Sowerby blue 2505 Iris
posy plus holder for rather too many years now, waiting for a plinth. So you can imagine my pleasure when the plinth came up on e**y, the auction site that we all love to hate. Eventually, after paying rather more than I had planned, it arrived. Eventually I found the posy, in the bottom box in the far corner. So I unpacked the plinth.
So I had it all together, like this
, to put together like this
. The plinth was numbered 2530
So I assembled the set.
It didn't fit!
The reality is this
Thinking about it, the plinth pattern number of 2530 was too low. I'm sure that the correct plinth has a number closer to 2600. Also the shape of the fitting is wrong. This 2530 plinth has an unforgiving upright fitting, whereas the correct plinth for the 2505 posy has a more gently curved fitting, and measures 2Β½" instead of the 2530's 2ΒΌ".
I'm sure that this is the first 2530 I've seen. Does anyone know what it fits? ... and what is the correct pattern number of the 2505 posy plinth?
So, both into the box for another wait, hopefully for not so long.
