Pattern 3/1365

This print doesn't appear to have an official name 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 it have the number '1365' included in the printed mark. This example is a nice early Francis Morley one with no printed mark.
