   Backmarks (1) are the mark on the Underside of a plate or item. There is usually two marks- the Manufacturers mark and the Decorator mark.  If there is only one mark (and it is the Manufacturers mark), the item was decorated elsewhere, either sold as whiteware and painted by the owner, or by a hand painting artist/ studio such as Stouffer or Pickard.  There are always exceptions, especially with Charles Field Haviland!

The number usually found under a casserole (Covered Vegetable lid or on a sugar/creamer) is called the Factory number. Some of the Factory numbers have been identified in the later Schleiger books to a Schleiger Pattern

The most popular mark you will find is Mark I combined with Mark c as this was when the most Haviland was sold.
