Broad Street Works
'Steam' print

This print does not appear to have had an official name when launched, as there is no reference to a name in any of the factory pattern description books. It was referred to as 'Steam' in the factory engraving department when I visited it shortly before the factory closed. Exactly how it got this name I am not clear, perhaps it refers to the wispy border, who knows?

Pattern 3/1365 mug

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.'1
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.

The presence of "ENGLAND" indicates a date of manufacture after 1891. The pattern number is very late in the B/ series so c.1898-99.
