I collect this Alfred Meakin Royal Floating Blue porcelain. I'd really like to know all parts they produced of it. Is there some way of finding out?

Excuse my bad English. I live in Norway

Do you know the name of the pattern? ( by the way it's called "flowing blue" or sometimes "flow blue").
If you know the name you can find it on Replacements.com and find more pieces.
Lovely set!

Can you post a picture of the stamp on the bottom? Very often that's where the name is.

That's just what I started to think about, AFTER opening up all the different chinas from a-d!!!! Ha-ha! It's called Raleig. I thought ar first it was where the factory was located... ;) Do you know it there is a catalouge from the company that list's the different pieces? I'm googling, but I can't find it. I guess this is only a dinnerset as I've never seen coffecups...

For additional pieces, or just to find out what other pieces were made, I like to look at ebay!

Is this a piece? I've always thought flow blue was blue/white only. Maybe it's not a 'true' flow blue??

This seller calls it flow blue transferware. Is it all one and the same?

All "Flow Blue" is transferware as is its cousin "Flow Mulberry". The height of the period was about 1845-1855. Almost all of it was for the American export trade. As a result these pieces are relatively rare in England. Here in America, during the 1980s-1990s, much "Flow Blue" and "Flow Mulberry" was purchased by collectors and as of yet has not left those collector's hands so it's gotten rare to locate on this side of the pond as well. Both colors were often made in the same, or similar, patterns.

I have an extensive collection of both "Flow Blue" and "Flow Mulberry" with the latter my favorite by far. About 3-4 years ago, I sold a platter of combined "Flow Blue" and "Flow Mulberry" at our booth in CT. These pictures are not as close up as would be desired for this type of use but still you can see the difference between what's shown above in this post and the early period "Flow Blue".

The pieces pictured above are from a much later period (1870s-1880s, maybe even 1890s) and very much different. They appeal to a different collector as well. Your first give away is the gold rims. You'd never see that in an early piece. Also, the fancy molds and lighter weight. An early piece is very heavy for its size and the ink is very smudged ("flowing").

Here's my pictures of a Davenport combined "Flow Blue" and "Flow Mulberry" platter that dates to 1848.

Here is a picture of "Flow Mulberry" as a close-up so the style of the transferware's ink flow can be seen better.

Personally, I think it's a stretch to refer to the OP's pictures as "Flow Blue".
