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 Prussn Sh, Impl Covd ps. Dessert Clarn Ew. Printed in Mulberry, nothing on biscuit, brown edge. As 790 but Ew & Prussn Sh flat printed in Mulberry & flown. enamelld 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.

For other wares with the same print see the 'Steam' print page.

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