The Viking Mugs are Shape 3044 stacking mugs and were made in three colours c1980.
Cork, Blue and Larch.

These two mugs are the right shape, but are they the right colours?

Just stumbling in the dark really, grasping for straws Razz

These are not a common shape like the 3050 ....

You could be onto something there Ev.
I went through the deco book and made a list of all the patterns that relate to mugs. Then started to add photos of patterns that we haven't found.
I will go and look on the laptop & check the files to see if i have these in any other colours.

I know what cork looks like, but neither of those mugs have cork on them.
No idea what Larch looks like ???
Does being English help you with that colour? Very Happy

Umm..larch is a tree so id go with the one on the right being green/larch and blue .
The cork colour could just be brown.
They may of used the made in china cups as inspiration.

I have never seen one of those. Laughing

The tooled leather look mug is cool. Im sure that is the pattern name for that one. Seen it on a few different shaped mugs.
There must be more cups on the site. Busy scrolling through threads

Thats right.... the wrong shape!!! Thats why I would not have said anything . But i still refer to that pattern as tooled leather 🤔
Ive never seen that pattern on the tall mugs.

I have a few "hunches" on pattern names, its hard to be exactly sure.
