1 Pint Pewter Celtic Banded Engraved Tankard
A tankard is a form of drinkware consisting of a large, roughly cylindrical, drinking cup with a single handle. Tankards are usually made of silver, pewter, or glass. They can also be made of other materials, for example, wood, ceramic, or leather. A tankard may have a hinged lid. Tankards featuring glass bottoms are also fairly common. Tankards are shaped and used similarly to beer steins.
The word “tankard” originally meant any wooden vessel and later came to mean a drinking vessel. The earliest tankards were made of wooden staves, similar to a barrel, and did not have lids. A 2000-year-old wooden tankard of approximately four-pint capacity has been unearthed in Wales.
Pewter is a very common tankard material. It is a malleable metal alloy composed of 85–99% tin. Pewter was used for decorative metal items and tableware in ancient times by the Egyptians and later the Romans and came into extensive use in Europe from the Middle Ages until the various developments in pottery and glass-making during the 18th and 19th centuries.
