This fine quality One Pint Beer Tankard has been hand made by Sheffield craftsmen from genuine lead-free pewter. The vessel has a glass bottom which traditionally helped men avoid drinking from the tankard and unwittingly enlisting with the Royal Navy if a Kings shilling coin had been added. This fascinating item is embossed on the back with a history of the press gangs and their ploys to trick the unwary into having to join up. At our unbeatable price this Kings Shilling Tankard will make a unique souvenir of times gone by and a historical gift to cherish
