Ev..
I have made two piles of pottery, 1) super vitrified and 2) vitrified
I have gone through the 700 800 and 4600 onward and then through every other notes that I have. I can't find any that are these "half" sizes?
These plates measure 6 1/2 inch - 7 1/2 inch and 9 1/2 inch, in diameter.
The back-stamps are all saying vitrified and a couple have 6 or 7 or 8 ( which would be the year?)

I will go through my lot and see what I find.
Yes the single digit number will be the year made in the 1960's e.g. 6 = 1966
The double digit numbers are the year made e.g. 83 = 1983

One thing I have noticed is the mention of Light Weight Hotel Ware or LW.  
So we have to work out what this indicates too.  Could mean vitrified as against supervitrified perhaps ....?

We must remember that cups, plates, bowls etc were made on jiggers, so perhaps there is room for error in sizes during this process .... ?  
Not sure as I've never used this method.

I have to move this into the vitrified ware section .... so that we can find it again.

What a can of worms you have opened Janice !!!
None of my lot are standard sizes either, they are all over the place.
Smallest saucer is 5 3/8ths and the largest is nearly 6 inches!!

Janice look at Fantasy d136 from the Patterns book and you will find all the numbers for the plates in there.  These all have a 'rolled' edge in the coupe shape, but the measurements are the standard ones.  If you have any Fantasy we should be able to work out which they are. From 4612 ...... to 4619.

The three that you posted above are called 'Rim Plates' 4620 to 4623, though one looks like it has a rolled edge and these are 4626, 4628 and 4629.  
Another brick wall to beat our heads against I'm afraid !

(I wrote the following before the topic was moved.)

Ev, I think the Cook & Serve cans and saucers (782, 792) may give an idea of lightweight.

The supervit does tend to be heavy.
As bought from unouwanit, and confirmed by Ducks Nuts the Reflections can (3618) sits on a heavy supervit saucer.

It may be that lightweight is ANYTHING OTHER THAN the heavy stuff.

Nothing more to offer til I get back home.
Good Luck.

These were only the start! I have another lot of supervit. of which fanasty is part of.

and then... red Thistle on vitrified a different shape again ( lighter in weight )

It makes my head hurt LOL

Then the cups... saucers ... dishes LOL

The person who was selling the "duck egg speckle" vitrified/ super vit will have all the shapes ? Unless she sold hem all?

I wrote out the shape numbers for Hosp pattern and fantasy - but was side tracked with vitrified ones....

Another day!!
