"WR" 1700 Hand Carved

From £50.00

Please note we charge £1 per letter.

Product Description

Many an Ale wife was pilloried over the centuries for giving short measure by half filling the jack or tankard with pitch. The 1700 WR design celebrates the resultant first measured pint in England, introduced by William III, or William of Orange, in 1700.
A copy of the original poster is included in the purchase price of the product.

Historically, leather tankards were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather drinking vessels are lined with an epoxy resin to echo the historic use of resin whilst having the visual appearance of Brewer’s pitch. The resin we use is fully certified for use in both the food and alcohol industries.
