Medieval Measuring Beaker - 10 cm - 20 cl - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter

- +

Handcrafted by Italian artisans, the middle piece in a set of five, this pretty pewter measuring beaker is the perfect addition to a busy kitchen.

Our family of beakers, are cast from original antiques with a interesting back-story. These were historically used by shopkeepers to measure flour, sugar or oil etc. Periodically a weights and measures inspector would visit to ensure the shopkeeper wasn’t cheating by using beakers with false bottoms to 'short-change' the customers. If the beaker passed inspection, it was stamped to prove it was a true measure.

These pretty and practical vessels could also be used to serve drinks, it's the perfect sparkling wine measure or to display flowers, or hold pens, pencils or even make-up brushes...
