A pint of history.
Made by hand in Italy and inspired by antique designs, these handsome pewter tankards in half-pint and pint sizes are a throwback to 18th century-era bar culture. The molds used to create these tankards bear markings that represent the actual stamps from the regional inspector of the day, whose job was to examine the original glasses and certify they were exactly a half- or full pint.
