Broad Street Works
'Franklin' table shape

 

Francis Morley & Co.

"Cleopatra" 'No. 4'

"Zamara" 'No. 6'

 

"Cleopatra" 'No. 4'

The factory pattern 'Description Book for 1850' lists six versions of "Cleopatra", of which the fourth reads:
'Cleopatra painted under glaze ... No.4 printed in purple - fill'd in M[att] blue buff & green'

"Cleopatra" was used on several table shapes but they all appear to have used the same shape meat dishes so I list it here until further examples appear.

The meat dish is 15 inches long and 11.5 inches wide. Earthenware.

"Zamara" 'No. 6'

The factory pattern 'Description Book for 1850' lists six versions of "Zamara", of which the last reads:
'Zamara No 6 Printed in blue, colord [sic] Pink, buff, green.'
The second pattern book indicates the pattern is on 'Franklin Sh[ape] Ew' and that the colours are 'under glaze'.1

The dinner plate is 10.25 inches in diameter. Earthenware.

The backstamp leaves much to be desired. There is no indication of a "6" anywhere.
