A tankard is a form of drink ware consisting of a large, roughly cylindrical, drinking cup with a single handle. Tankards are often found with glass bottoms. The legend is that the glass based tankard was developed as a way of refusing the King's shilling, i.e. conscription into the British army or navy. The classical and traditional style makes these tankards one of our most popular gentlemen’s gifts. These hand crafted pewter tankards are made of English top quality lead-free pewter. 1 pint.
