James Yates - One Pint 1870 Pattern Pewter Baluster Tankard - Identical to the companies 19th century originals
This tankard is brand new and made by the famous pewter manufacturer James Yates. James Yates have been making tankards in this pattern since around 1860 so this truly is the ultimate in traditional English pewter tankards. This tankard is made to the exact design and dimensions used by James Yates in the 19th century, this means that this tankard not only looks identical to those made in the 19th and early 20th century but it even weights exactly the same at 584g (1.29lb) as the originals making it vastly more substantial than most tankards produced by other manufacturers, interestingly many companies do not even state the weight of the tankards which they manufacture or sell but we have weighed a large cross section and some are as light as 200g (7oz) with an average of 275g (9.7oz) so these tankards at 584g (1.29lb) are in a complete league of their own when compared to the lightweight alternatives.
The final two images show two of the manufacturers tankers made over 100 years ago which is exactly the same size and weight as the current model.
