Chamberlain’s didn’t put pattern numbers on their wares for their earlier productions, but there is an extensive list with descriptions of the patterns for the earliest period from which we can re-identify the pattern. There are two pattern list entries that describe possible patterns for this design, 441 “Baden, fine brown views all round & bead border” , and 450, “Brown views different and gold bead border”.  450’s reference to ‘Baden’ is a distinct concave shape with slight ridge at the foot, as well as being ‘all round’, meaning a continuous landscape: this example is from a service that had the plain coffee cups with straight bucket-shape bowls and no lower ridge, and landscapes are reserved on a white ground, not continuous. This is therefore pattern 450.
