straight ingram & hunt tankard
the tankards typically found by ingram & hunt of bewdley, england are tulip shaped. occasionally one is lucky and discovers a straight sided example by the eighteenth century partnership. i am therefore quite pleased to have this handsome hard-to-find quart to offer for sale. the heavy broken 'c' handles and 'plume' thumbpieces are unique designs of ingram & hunt. these provincial partners exported many fine pewter forms to america between 1778 and 1807 including teapots, porringers, sauce pots, tankards, loving cups and more. they were first-class craftsmen and designers. the tankard stands 7 3/4" tall and is in very good condition. their partial touch mark is struck on the inside bottom. a similar pint example is pictured (fig 269) on page 125 of donald herr's book "pewter in pennsylvania churches."
