First things first - yes, this wonderful tankard has long since lost its handle. We absolutely love it though. It’s a charming piece of early hand-decorated pottery spongeware. The discolouration and crackling to the glaze really give it an evocative worn and well used appearance. It could be used as a penpot on a desk or just for a decorative touch somewhere. Early to mid 19th century.
