This wonderful folk art lidded tankard is made entirely of tin, likely as a gift for a 10th wedding anniversary party. The tankard features a good taper to the sides with a medial rib and a slightly domed hinged lid all indictave of a mid 18th century origin. The condition is excellent with some light typical wear to the tinning but no abuse and no damage. The tankard is a wonderful example of the the art and craftsmanship of the 19th century tinsmith that would have been the highlight of any tin anniversary party. The form is outstanding, the surface untouched and the patina impeccable.
