Engraved small Dutch tankard

Stock Number: 4916

This is what we believe to be a small, mould-blown, Georgian, engraved glass mug or tankard dating from the turn of the 18th/19th century, c1800.  The design and engraving would suggest a Low Countries origin.
 
The tankard is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200 years of use.  
 
The tankard has a barrel-shaped bowl measuring 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with a pastoral scene of a farmhouse with trees and other foliage.  A band of foliage is also engraved under the rim.  The lower quarter of the tankard is finger flute-moulded and leads to a lemon squeezer style base.  The base of the tankard is 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter.  It carries a strap handle affixed first to the top of the glass.  The handle has been finished off roughly but it does not appear to have been broken off.  The glass is 8.6 cm (3.5 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
 
A good, clean, period small tankard suitable for a glass of punch rather than a modern serving of ale.
