Copper Tankard

This traditional tapered tankard is 4.25 inches tall, over 2.75 inches wide at the mouth, 3.5 inches in diameter at the base, and will hold about 16 oz of liquid (not overwhelmingly large, and yet not so small to enjoy a complete cold one). The body of the tankard is the authentic two piece construction with a seperate bottom, not a modern stamped one piece. It will fit the bill for a piece of houseware pilfered by passing troops, campfollower's baggage items, gentleman's mess, or any good pirate. Convenient size for packing or transporting, and made intentionally sturdy for many years of enjoyable use. The handle is comfortable even for a larger man's hand.
$32.00 each

Tin Tankard

This tapered tankard is 4.5 inches tall, over 2.5 inches wide at the mouth, 3.5 inches in diameter at the base, and will hold about 14 oz of liquid. It will fill the bill for house wares pilfered by passing troops or a gentleman's mess. Convenient size for packing or transporting, and made sturdy for intended many years of use.
$16.00 each
