I recently read on Trademe that Crown Lynn bought Gibpat in 1968 and their name was added to the backstamp.......

A Metro dessert bowl that I found recently.  
Can't see a number for this vitrified bowl and it is 181mm across.  
Can anyone help find the number for this please?
As this appears to be a whole range of vitrified ware, I'm surprised at how little there is around, even though gloworm says it's quite common, this is the first piece that I have ever found and it doesn't even look used.
