Original British Pre-WWI Naval Pewter Quart Tankard from H.M.S. Boyne

Item Description

Original Item. Only One Available. Original British made Pewter One Quart Tankard marked to H.M.S. BOYNE, which saw service as a Destroyer of the River Class launched in 1904. She saw service in the Devonport Flotilla from 1915 and in 1917 was transferred to the 7th Destroyer Flotilla on the East Coast. She saw service throughout WW1 but was retired and broken up for scrap in 1919.

In nice matured condition, however this Quart Tankard has met with possibly enemy fire, in that the ear handle has been wrenched to the side, splitting the point where the upper attachment meets the brim on either side. Clearly some attempt at "on board" repair was made but perhaps the damage was too severe and the Tankard abandoned after the repair failed. There is also a split on part of the bottom seam. Traces of the original "IMPERIAL QUART" marking can be seen next to the handle, along with British proof marks, one of which appears to be Crown / V R which would make this a Victorian era piece, put into service on the H.M.S. Boyne.

Still in great display condition another great bit of Royal Naval history.
