Base incised A89-4
The shape book has no sketch, just a note "as old 1-4" (ie same as Later Series shape no. 1, size 4 inches). It appears that this was the first size, initially numbered just A89, then when other sizes were introduced with inch suffixes it became A89-4.
Note however, the distinction beween eg A89/4 (A89 with glaze type 4) and A89-4 (A89, size 4 inches)
Base rubber-stamped (not incised) A89-10/4
In 'A' Series numbering, a numeral after a dash denotes the size in inches. A numeral after a slash, however, denotes the glaze style. For further discussion of 'A' Series sufixes click here.
