"This is a list of pattern numbers and names,
originally published by the Tyne & Wear Museums Service
It runs from the 5000s through to the 6000s (i.e. from about 1930 onwards)
The list was compiled from memory by former factory workers
and is known to contain both errors and omissions
Pattern numbers are hand painted and usually accompanied by the monogram of the paintress
This may be a letter, a number, a combination of both, or an abstract symbol
The monogram appears beneath the pattern number
Sorry, but we don't know who all the paintresses were"

From this information, it can be established that Sharon's bowl is
Pattern Number 6548
Pattern numbers 6524 to 6570 have a date range between 1950 and 1955
The paintress was "Y1"

I am still way in front!!!"
