This tall 19th century Pewter Flagon is 11” tall (top of the thumb piece on the handle) and 4 7/8” in diameter (at the base). The handle and the spout have elaborate form, and there are 2 rings of decorative engraved marks, on at the top and the other toward the bottom. In addition, the flagon has 2 separate touch-marks, one on the top of the handle and one inside on the flagon’s bottom. I believe these to be Alsatian marks. The piece is in fine condition with no cracks, breaks, etc. There are a couple of shallow dents on the base. I believe it to be the original finish, and the handle is secure. Whenever I look at this flagon, I think of the 1950s Danny Kaye movie “The Court Jester,” which included a patter-song routine: “The Chalice with the Palace has the brew that is true, but the flagon with the dragon and the vessel with the pestle have the poison…” (paraphrased as best I can remember!).
