This tankard is in good used condition. Stamped with a matching set of silver marks to the body and lid, handle with maker’s mark. The lid marks are a bit rubbed. A nice feature are the tell-tale dents on top of the handle where the thumb piece has been touching for over 300 years. There has been a small repair to the top rim next to the handle. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
