This old English Pewter Tankard has the name JAMES YATES impressed just under the rim band next to the handle. On the front bulb part is imprinted ...PINT. I recall there is some dissension as to when James Yates was active....some say as early as the 1840's and others 1860-1880. This is definitely a very old piece of pewter with real wear signs to it....some dents ....a deep cut into the rim at one spot, and the rim and base are not truly round anymore. All the same a highly collectible old piece from Yates.
