West Country copper measure jug,a fascinating and attractive item Unbranded

£19.99

Product description

West Country copper measure jug

The information below is from "Marks and Marking of weights & measures of the British Isles" by Carl Ricketts with John Douglas

IMPERIAL MEASURES
So called 'West Country' measures in brass
(centre top), copper (left front) and pewter dating from c1826-35 except the half-gill which is late Victorian. Verification marks are usually struck in
or outside the 'mouth' where brass,copper and tin measures often have discs of lead soldered on for this purpose.
All are verified but only the half-gallon (probably made in Exeter) and pint (by M Fothergill, Bristol) were made in the West
Country. Mostly these were London made and the earliest marks on both the brass quart and copper half pint are City of
London 'G IV' verifications. They were made in a wide range of sizes well into the 20th Century.
