I know nothing about pewter, so please look at my 10 PHOTOS closely and I'll do my best to describe. Please message me with any questions.

is a very old antique (19th Century?) heavy pewter lidded tankard flagon mug stein (I don't know what you call this). It looks to hold a pint of beer or liquid.

The bottom is marked with "Made In Holland" with an angel blowing a trumpet in an oval cartouche with "90" on left, "ZIN" on right, and the initials from left to right JWV (see photo).

It measures 6" tall to the lid top, the lid handle extends this to about 6-3/4". The bottom is 4-3/8" in diameter. The top is 3-5/8" in diameter.

This is a very well made and strong and sturdy item. The pewter is thick and heavy. It's decorated with two sets of lines around the center part.

It's in nice condition with NO cracks or breaks or repairs. The top lid hinge opens and closes smoothly. T are some scattered dings and scratches and t, but this doesn't look like a big deal (see photos).

This has been kept well over the years and is ready for display.

Since I don't know much about pewter, please send me any questions and I'll gladly look this item over again and respond.
