A traditional English pewter pint tankard created by our mastercraftsmen and finished with a glass base. The glass bottomed tankard was developed as a way of avoiding conscription into the British Navy. If a shilling was placed in someone's tankard the drinker could see the coin, refuse the drink, thereby avoiding conscription.

When a press gang was looking for crew to join the Royal Navy, they would often go into ale houses to find able bodied men.  Having drunk all the ale, the poor victim was judged to have 'accepted the Kings Shilling' and therefore volunteered to join the navy.  To try and keep their customers, the landlords introduced glass bottomed tankards, so that the prospective crew member was able to look in to their beer and see the shiling before accepting the kind gift.

We will provide artwork for your personalised gift which we will need to be approved. Please look out for our emails to make sure you receive the gift during the desired delivery time.

All our gifts come wrapped and ribboned in our sustainable Inkerman gift boxes, with a handwritten message if required.
