A larger and top condition German pewter Tankard, 18th. century and inscribed dated on the body!
This tankard is in choice condition, no repair, fine metal, well maintained. It's of semi-tall design and finely decorated and inscribed on the body: SchÃ¼tzen Gilde zu Husbuy Anno 1839. The tankard is likely somewhat older, to judge from the rather clear stamps and marks, it could have been manifactured in the year 1792. A SchÃ¼tzen Gilde was actually a sort union of hunters or sharpshooters, so this could have been given as a price in a competiotion in 1839.
Size: 23,7 tall x 11 cm wide.
