Literature. The term “mug” is traditionally used for a single-handed, lidless drinking vessel. They are nearly all of either pint or half pint capacity. Antique silver mugs are very rarely found as early as tankards, the earliest seeming to date from about 1680

Condition

In good condition. Superb colour. One small mark inside where the bottom of handle has pushed in a bit. This mug has been water tested and does not leak.
