19c Victorian 1-qt pewter tankard VR stamp; Hackney Rd
- Source: eBay
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.
