Medieval Measuring Beaker - 8 cm - 10 cl - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter

- +

The second smallest in a set of five, handcrafted by Italian pewterers, 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 size for a still or fortified wine measure, on the bar or table holding cocktail sticks or in the bathroom holding cotton buds...
