We already have the 123-4 and 123-6 in the Shapes Gallery so this piece fills out this set of sizes.
The -4 and -6 and -8 refer to the measurements of 4 inches, 6 inches and 8 inches.

I found one of these yesterday, measures 8 inch, so I would say that its the clematis bowl 123/8, no back stamp.
As it sits in the shape description book along with other crown Lynn shapes, why is it called Wentworth? just curious...
No photo as it looks the same the picture on this thread...

Here is the Wentworth Ware backstamp -
http://www.newzealandpottery.net/t1437-wentworth-ware-backstamp?highlight=wentworth

This range was made in the 1950's and 1960's and it was a time when Crown Lynn were being very English and used British on their backstamps to try to sell their wares with the connotation as to being English. The Carlton Ware cabbage type ware was copied at this time by Crown Lynn and was called Wentworth Ware too and I have no idea why they used the term Wentworth Ware, but I'm sure it has something to do with England Razz

Hello, I think the Crown Lynn cabbage ware is called Fancy Fayre.

Are all the Wentworth Ware bowls marked? I have some that I am not sure of that only have a small incised number at the middle of the base, often a 4.

They probably had the Wentworth Ware sticker at one time I would say.
