boardman half pint measure
measures by american makers are not common and are prized by most serious collectors today. it is only recently that the form gained interest leading to much investigation by pewter scholars. this unmarked 1/2 pint is attributable to boardman as it is identical to documented marked examples, which are typically marked "boardman & hart". this piece is circa 1830 and stands 3 3/4" tall. the condition is excellent.
