What do the numbers mean on Guy Wolff pottery?

Each piece of Guy Wolff Garden Pottery is stamped with a number, indicating the ''wet weight'' of clay that the potter used to make that pot.

This was a system that was adopted in Victorian times by potters who specialized in horticultural wares.  The idea was to standardize the sizes of certain standard horticultural forms, such as Rose Pots, Long Toms, Full Pots and Seed Pans.  Guy Wolff has carried on that tradition.
