"Flow blue is a style of stoneware, sometimes porcelain, that
originated in the Victorian era, sometime in the 1820s, among the Staffordshire
potters of England. The
name is derived from the blue glaze that blurred or "flowed" during the
firing process. Most flow blue ware is a kind of transferware, where
the decorative patterns were applied with a paper stencil to often
white-glazed blanks, or standard pottery shapes, though some wares were
hand painted. The stencils burned away in the kiln. The blue glazes
used in flow blue range from gray-blue to sometimes greenish blue, to
an inky blue; however the most desirable and sought-after shade is a
vivid cobalt blue. Mulberry
is another form of flow blue, where the glaze is more purple in hue." Source
