Here's a handsome Victorian quart measure in the bulbous-bodied tulip style, with a scroll "crank" handle, decorative ridge around the body and an unusual two-tone dark/light treatment in surface coloration. It has an excise stamp on the rim to the right of the handle.The typical Victorian crown "VR" (Victoria Regina) and "LS" for the district in which it was inspected. Curiously, the measure is stamped with a superfluous "ONE QUART" designation bold text at the color median on the body which appears to have been struck later than the measure's manufacture. It already has the original strike of "QUART" and "JAMES YATES" just left of the handle. On the bottom inside is stamped a 6 a crown and an X. The number represents the pewterer who worked on it, the crown and X denoting English and high quality.
James Yates was a prolific maker of quality pewter in Birmingham England and underwent several company permutations up into the next century.

The measure is in generally excellent condition for its age, with no holes or repairs evident but a few dings and scratches.
It's a massive vessel (6"tall, 5" diameter at belly and 4" at mouth)that would do justice to any antique pewter collection.
