Default Re: 13 amp fuse for 1.5mm mains flex?

My O level syllabus included being given 3A, 5A etc fuses (probably Bussmann or similar) for assessment. They routinely carried 1.5 times their rated current for many minutes before failing. (I assume the default format for plug fuses is 'slow blow')
I have an old looking glass 500mA fuse (without sand), not sure where it came from or what it's intended use was. Possibly for a plug on an electric blanket..
