Accessories:  Pewter Tavern Mug, Quart Pot
I have read that the decline of heavy pewter mugs in the tavern scene coincided with the rise of lighter brews. Go figure. This tavern pot has a tapered drum- shaped body and a hollow cast handle with a tongued thumbrest. This exact pot is pictured in
"Pewter of Great Britain: For Pleasure and Investment" by Christopher Arthur Peal, pg. 189.... just in case you want to read all about pewter pleasure and profit.
Good antique condition with compression marks on handle and body.
Marked "WH" for William Hogg of Newcastle, England. The marks can be seen in image number 4.
c. 1760-1810

Pewter  5 3/4 inches tall  $365
