£85.00 85.00


These solid pewter 19th century pattern tankards are manufactured in London and Birmingham to the exact design and dimensions used by the manufacturer in the 19th century, this means that this tankard not only looks identical to those made in the 19th and early 20th century but it even weights exactly the same at 484g (17.07oz) as the originals making it vastly more substantial than other tankards produced by most other manufacturers, interestingly many companies do not even state the weight of the tankards which they manufacture or sell but we have weighed a large cross section and some are as light as 200g (7oz) with an average of 275g (9.7oz) so these tankards are much heavier and in a complete league of their own when compared to the lightweight alternatives.
