Bottle Capacity Measure, Pewter, Only Pint Size Known
Date/Period: 1800-1830


Bottle Capacity Measure, Pewter, Only Pint Size Known, entire view

Measurement: Capacity: 1 pint; height: 7.5"; diameter: 3.25"

Material: Pewter

Condition: In very good condition, with medium-light grey original surface patina.

Reference: See The Journal of the Pewter Society Autumn 2001 & Spring 2015.

Additional Information: Rare pint capacity pewter bottle measure [for wine], which in
this size is possibly a unique survivor. Contrary to previous wisdom, these vessels were
not created to serve as bottle drainers. They were used as a bottle measure to detect
the capacity of glass wine bottles in the days before they could be made accurately,
which did not occur until the second quarter of the 19th century. This is the smallest
example recorded having a maximum capacity of 1 pint.

This measure is very substantially made of pewter, and although it appears to have
the body of a baluster measure, the construction does not utilize a normal body, but was
hand made for the specific purpose. The series of four 'steps' inside the neck give the
approximate capacities of the bottles being measured.
