Ale House Tankard

Original tankard finely engraved to the front "Falcon Inne." Manufactured in brass, the tankard would have been used in a public house and the engraving would effectively be an early form of property mark to ensure the tankard remained on the premises! It features a hinged lid and is generally in great used condition showing just minor age wear as you would expect, but overall has great patina and probably dates from the late 19th century. Capacity looks to be a pint. It measures 6.5” (16cm.) high. Whilst not fitting into either our normal Nautical and Aeronautical theme it just exudes character and we had to buy it!
