The 4 3/4" fruit bowl was not part of the original line of 34 pieces released in 1936, but was added later in the third round of additions in January of 1938, two years after the tablewares release.

The bottom of the 50's and later (that means the elusive Medium Green as well) is always wiped dry and not fully glazed like the earlier bowls. Instead of the three stilt marks used to sit the pieces on saggers in the kiln, production methods changed in the early 50s which allowed the pieces to be run through the kiln on shelves, highly time-saving and already in effect on the tea pots and sugar bowls.
