Tankards & Mugs

photo of Strap Handle 28 oz Mug
Price: $195

The Strap handle 28 oz Mug is an original design inspired by those made in New England in the 18th century. The high fillet line detail on the body and the boot heel handle terminal are characteristic features of these kinds of mugs. It’s a beautiful form that is fun to look at and use!

Photo of  Bradford Quart Tankard
Price: $375

The Bradford Quart Tankard is a reproduction of an early 18th century piece made in New York City by pewterer William Bradford, Jr. The original is an extremely rare tankard. Only a handful of marked examples exist. Ours has the distinctive ramshorn thumbpiece, and low, flat lid with crenate lip and a sturdy handle with a boot-heel terminal. This tankard is a numbered series.

Porringers

Photo of Medium Porringer, “Old English” Handle
Price: $75

The Medium Porringer with Old English Handle has a new look. We’ve abandoned the basin bowl and gone to the larger, 4.25″ bowl used on the Flower Handle and Med. Jones Porringers.

The Old English Handle is larger than is predecessor as well. The overall length of handle and bowl on this porringer is 6″.  A classic form with many potential uses!

 

Photo of Crown Handle Porringer
Price: $95

The Crown Handle Porringer is a reproduction of an 18th century porringer that I believe was made in Boston.

It has a 5.25″ diameter bowl which was referred to as a pint capacity. These were multi-purpose vessels that were used to eat from, to drink from and to use as measures. In fact, if you look at the inventories of 18th century pewterers, they list the porringers by their capacity...

Photo of Medium Porringer, Flower Handle
Price: $75

The Medium Porringer Flower Handle is a piece my father reproduced many years ago. I believe he copied a 19th century porringer made by the Cincinnati, Ohio firm of Flagg & Homan. It is a wonderful handle design. Most medium size porringer bowls are 4.25″ in diameter.

Photo of  J. Bassett Porringer
Price: $95

I introduced the John Bassett Porringer several years ago. John Bassett was active in New York City circa 1720 – 1761, and surviving examples of his work today are very rare. His sons Francis and Frederick were also skilled pewterers who produced excellent wares.

This Bassett Porringer has a 5.25″ (pint) bowl with two incised lines on the rim and an “Old English” type handle. Another...

Photo of  Large Melville Porringer
Price: $95

The Melville Porringers are reproductions of ones made in Newport, Rhode Island in the 18th century by David Melville, circa 1755–1793. This kind of handle is referred to as the Solid, Rhode Island type. I enjoy the simplicity of the handle design and it is perhaps the strongest handle I make. Original examples of this type of porringer are scarce.

The flower handle design on the Lee Porringer is a unique form, made only by Richard Lee and Richard Lee, Jr. The handle is beautiful and balances well with the larger bowl.
