James Yates - One Pint Parachute Regiment Solid Pewter Tankard - Identical weight and dimensions as the manufacturers 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 tankards. Their solid pewter 19th century pattern tankards are manufactured in the UK to the exact design and dimensions used by the company back 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 as the originals making it vastly more substantial than the majority of 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 weighing 484g (17.07oz) are in a complete league of their own when compared to the lightweight alternatives.
