This saucer has Viking 446 as it's backstamp. I'm not 100% convinced that this is the correct pattern name. Sometimes I have seen the wrong backstamp on pieces.
I don't know why I have a gut feeling maybe   it looks wrong after seeing the cook serve back stamp on a plain colour saucer.....Unsure.... meanwhile
I'll put it into the gallery under Viking as per it's backstamp.  Janice

The pattern certainly looks Nordic/Scandinavian as the name indicates.

Sometimes the patterns are reversed cup and saucer on coffee cans like Blue Tango and Sapphire which have patterned uprights and plain flats where other cup shapes have patterned-flat/plain-upright, suggesting that there may be coffee cans with this pattern, although it would be surprising as so many saucers have turned up.

Janice, is it an 805 or a 739, ie e/w or vit?

It's a 805 saucer. Pattern is also called fernlea as per newspaper cuttings at the museum.
I have this pattern in plain black and also in black with blue leaves..... and now red and black

And the the red and blue patches look handcoloured or part of the transfer, Janice?

This would be easier to tell I guess if you have more than one each of same colour.
