Antique pewter cup with lid (1) - Pewter/Tin - 19th century

Description
Antique pewter cup with lid (1) - Pewter/Tin - 19th century
Netherlands

Antique thick-walled pewter cup, presumably from the 19th century.

The cup is also called tankard, it has a well-fitting hinged lid. The basement has suffered a dent over time, and has developed a beautiful tin patina through time.

The cup has known several owners, who have placed their own initials in the hinge point of the lid, since we see "W A": of the creator or owner, and over it "D W".

The cup has, but the initials of the presumed maker 'W A', no master mark, and therefore neither a content sign nor a year letter.

"One to this day usable, characteristic item from a time long gone."
