What is the backstamp on Mary Mary?
Let me look at my database to see what I can find.... hang on...

Many thanks to Kate and Dayle Slinn for this lovely old bowl.

In the 1949 Crown Lynn on Film there is a piece showing the transfer for this bowl being put on. We don't have a shape number for this bowl, but I will put it into the Crown Lynn No Numbers Gallery, in case we come across some info.

The backstamp was used until 1948, so this gives a good idea for the date and white clay was first used in 1948 too.
