English Measure for American Use 

English, c.1750

An interesting piece of Colonial history. A half-pint measure made in England for use in New England. Original Y on lid validates it for York, and later CM on rim extends the validation to Maine. Good architectural thumbpiece of a capitol with volutes. A good looking piece with great historical interest.

Nicely turned bowl and foot -- it stands proud!

Flat-Lidded Tankard 

English, 1680-1720

A good example of the early form -- straight-sides, flare- footed and flat-lidded. Lid and base marked with owners intials "IM' and with obscure wriggle work symbols. Rose and crown touch on handle. Fifty years ago my local pub had a beam thickly hung with the pewter mugs of the regulars -- each marked with owners's initials. Of course there was a "JF" hanging among them. Beer tastes great out of pewter.
