Blackjack

English, 18th c.

Leather. A substantial 'jack for the beer afficionado! It has that characteristic forward lean, and the body has been made from a single piece of leather -- including the handle. The bottom is inset and domed inward, and the interior is lined with pitch -- guaranteed authentic! As a bonus, it carries the impressed initials STJ, and what could be pricked initials MW on the bottom -- later owner perhaps? Good original condition, including dribbles from the hot pitch!

6-3/4" h x 3-3/4" diam (approx), 6-1/2" across handle.
