19c Victorian 1-qt pewter tankard VR stamp; Hackney Rd

DESCRIPTION
Superb large 19th century Victorian pewter Imperial quart beer ale tankard mug engraved with Bruce Roebuck Hackney Rd on the side (t's an additional word or abbreviation of a word after Bruce that looks like 3rd or Brt - though it seems unlikely this is a baronet's tankard - that I can't make out; see pix). Stamped VR 21 LCC with a crown and QUART on the side and the maker's mark PADDON inside the base. In excellent condition commensurate with age, materials and use; has remnants of white residue, presumably from cleaning, that can be cleaned off if desired. Measures 6 H x 6 1/2" W including the handle (4 3/4" diameter at the base). Heavy, weighs 2 lbs. before packing. Wonderful piece of history from London's old East End. 19t century.
