The yellow Duet is a really good find - one I don't have and not often seen. But prices are so wild at times: the best price ever - a few years ago - was £215 for a 4-in red-dot-on-white (reversed, I call it) Polka Dot vase, followed quite swiftly by £225 for a 5-in version of the same. The Intaglio range normally commands the best prices, but ones from the Carré (Escher) range are, surprisingly, not that expensive and although scarcer than Psychedelic often don't reach a comparable price.

On the same tack, I have a few Stuart 'seconds' dating back to the 1920s, which have the -S- mark. Like you I often can't see anything wrong with them, but the must have been some reason for not accepting these as a 'first'. Perhaps the quality control is just beyond our best scrutinisations!

it has been suggested to me that, in view of the small capacity of something like 85 ml., then this was probably intended as a sauce boat, rather than for gravy. I think I got the idea of the word gravy from Marcus' catalogue index where I'm sure I saw the word gravy.
