Offered for your consideration is this fine pair of antique flagon tankards. These footed beauties bear the touch mark of the same maker. Slight difference in the hallmark as they were created several years apart. I believe them to be of Austro-Hungarian origin. Both have wriggle work engraving on their bodies. One bears the name Johann Nicolaus Beyer 1762. The other one is Andereas Geider 1770. These flagons may be older than the dates engraved. At the top they have medallions with depictions of the Last Supper and Maria Theresa. From bottom of feet to top of lid they are approximately 11 inches tall. Finials add an additional 2 2/8 inches in height. Base is 5 inches wide and the mouth is 2 7/8 inches wide. They are in original condition. Surface wear and scuffs are present, as expected with ones of such antiquity. Darkening to interiors and one crack present. This runs 7/8 of an inch at the top as seen in the last photograph. From the front it is not easily noticed. I can gladly provide additional photos of these pieces upon request. This very attractive pair would be a welcomed addition to your advanced pewter collection! Please make sure to ask all necessary questions prior to purchase. Thank you!
