 Irish Quart Pewter Mug


A scarce Irish concave pewter 19th. century quart pub pot or measure signed J. Newman, Dublin, with the three castle verification mark shown in David Hall's book Irish Pewter, A History. Many Irish pots appear to have had a hard life as those illustrated in David's book will attest, and this one is no exception, with a repair to the upper handle attachment and numerous dents.
