Do you collect the bases too David?
Hi Eric,I do collect the bases but only if I get the original lid on it as being hand made these pots and lids all generally have some small variations and most will not fit on a non original pair. A good example is the common Gosnells lids (Queens Head) that have a uniquely shaped base that you can say is definitely meant for these lids but very rarely do lids fit on a non original base because of the individual potter who made them with there own way of finishing the recess on the lid and base.
