Original British Napoleonic Pewter Naval Pint Tankard marked to HMS Culloden 1783-1813 - Battle of the Nile
Original Item: Only One Available. With a ONE PINT capacity and plenty of proof/inspector's markings this is a LOVELY pewter tankard standing 5" tall and 3 1/2" across the lip of the tankard. The side of the tankard is very nicely engraved with an 18th century Man-o-War bearing the name of H.M.S. CULLODEN underneath, which took part in the Battle of the Nile in 1898.
H.M.S. CULLODEN was a 74 gun Warship and was launched in 1783. It saw much service in the French Revolution and Napoleonic wars and went out of service for the Royal Navy in 1813.
This tankard should NOT to be confused with a Pewter Grog measure. It was purchased, decorated, and used by a Naval Officer, and presumably departed with him when he left the vessel. Really uncommon and one of only about half a dozen included with the big British Navel Pewter Collection IMA obtained, which was mostly made up of Grog measures, plates and other items.
In lovely condition, ready to display!
