Chariot sprigging

This is not a graduated set of three mugs, indeed I would imagine there is a further size between the largest and middle ones. I purchased them at three different times from three different sources. I thought it best to show all three because of the detail variation in decoration that occurs between different sizes of the same product.

Pattern 3/1365

This print does not appear to have had an official name when launched, but was referred to as 'Steam' in the factory engraving department. Exactly how it got this name I am not clear, perhaps it refers to the wispy border visible inside the mug, who knows?
Late versions of this pattern have the number '1365' included in the printed mark. This example is a nice early Francis Morley one with no printed mark.

The full entry in the Pattern Description Book for Pattern 3/1365 reads:
'Table Pruss'n Sh, Imp'l Cov'd p's. Dessert Clar'n Ew. Printed in Mulberry. nothing on biscuit. brown edge. As 790 bu Ew & Pruss'n Sh flat printed in Mulberry & flown. enamell'd exactly the Same.'
Curiously there is no mention of mugs. This seems to have been a popular pattern, and many extra items were added to the pattern description book forms as time passed.

The mug is 83mm high and 93mm diameter at the rim. The handle protrudes by 28mm. Earthenware.
