I was wondering if all the hand potted vases were stamped as such, or were some simply stamped with the CL Stamp? This auction states hand potted, but is not stamped with the Hand Potted stamp. Would be interested in any input please.

I can't quite make out the words under Crown Lynn, but it looks like they might say Hand Potted or Hand Crafted .....?
That's a beautiful pot!

The words underneath say New Zealand. I bought this assuming it said Hand potted, but was wrong. Is it possible that it was hand potted even without the wording?

I don't know the shape, I don't know many of the handpotted shapes though, but it certainly looks like it's been hand potted in the Shufflebotham way, where a lathe is used to get the exact shape.
You may have to try researching that question, but will need to find the right keywords.
