Literature. The term “tankard” is traditionally used for a single handed drinking vessel with a lid. Antique silver tankards are usually much bigger than mugs and sometimes have a quart capacity or more. The earliest date at which the familiar shaped tankard occurs is circa 1640 although these are exceedingly rare.

Condition

This tankard is in very good condition. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks inside lid and on the body next to the handle, handle unmarked. The colour has a slight discolouration and there are a couple of dinks to the body. 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.
