Antique Primitive 18th Century Wooden Tavern Tankard Revolutionary War Era Piece:
Up for offers we offer a rare, 18th Century wooden tankard in very good, well-preserved condition. Made of pine staves and iron bands, this is the type of drinking vessel that was used in taverns as well as households. They are also considered Revolutionary War era artifacts. It has a folksy-looking carved handle that's actually part of one of the staves, not just attached. The bottom of this piece was carved to fit and is still in very good shape though it does have some inactive worm holes. The patina is untouched, original and absolutely beautiful. The surface shows age and wear as it should along with rich and warm coloring and superb graining. It stands 9 3/4 inches high and has a bottom diameter that measures 7 inches and a top diameter of 6 inches, not including the cover or handle. The handle itself is about 5 3/4 inches high and the total width of the tankard is about 8 1/4 inches including it. There are no problems with active woodworms, termites, or dry rot. This is a solid, sound, and well-preserved tankard that we guarantee to be old and authentic; it will certainly become an important part of any collection. You won't be disappointed in this scarce, museum quality item!
