1 Pint Heavy Style Pewter Kings Shilling Beer Mug Tankard - As Seen On TV

Font Choice Guide

This beautiful heavy weight one pint pewter tankard is one of the most iconic and historically significant tankards of the English Pewter Company range, telling as it does the story of how Naval press gangs used to trick drinkers to enlist using glass bottomed tankards. The straight sided, heavy gauge tankard is complete with text that reads; 'The King's Shilling, England's navy while being the life line for the small island nation were always short of trained sailors. To get more men to join the navy the press gangs were sent out to recruit men between the ages of 18 and 55 some would be knocked unconscious, threatened with a sword, pistol or musket, or plied with ale. Others would find a shilling at the bottom of their tankard of ale and since they were in possession for the king's shilling, they were in the navy. This led to landlords using glass bottom tankards'.

The tankard is completed with its own glass bottom, complete with enclosed Shilling and a gorgeous rope style handle to give it a historic and striking overall look. To make the gift extra special, a personalised message can be added on the item by opting for our engraving service. Each heavy style pewter tankard is supplied in our luxurious silk lined gift box as shown and comes complete with black velvet presentation bag.
