A Handsome Tulip Tankard with Heart Thumbpiece
A mid-18th century tulip tankard with heart-cutout thumbpiece.
This tankard has a very worn touchmark of Ash & Hutton, of Bristol, England. Ash & Hutton had a reasonable export business to the Colonies.
This style of tankard with its narrow body seems to be unique to the Bristol area. Aside from the heart-cutout thumbpiece this tankard has an unusual "split-bud" handle terminal.
7 1/2" tall to top of thumbpiece. In very good plus condition.
