Customer Reviews

Here's what our customers say about us and our service.

Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.

    This beautiful heavy weight one pint pewter tankard is one of the most iconic and historically significant tankards of the English Pewter Company range, telling as it does the story of how Naval press gangs used to trick drinkers to enlist using glass bottomed tankards. The straight sided, heavy gauge tankard is complete with text that reads; 'The King's Shilling, England's navy while being the life line for the small island nation were always short of trained sailors. To get more men to join the navy the press gangs were sent out to recruit men between the ages of 18 and 55 some would be knocked unconscious, threatened with a sword, pistol or musket, or plied with ale. Others would find a shilling at the bottom of their tankard of ale and since they were in possession for the king's shilling, they were in the navy. This led to landlords using glass bottom tankards.' The tankard is completed with its own glass bottom, complete with enclosed Shilling and a gorgeous Worcester rope style handle to give it a historic and striking overall look, as well as having the added interest of the story which it tells. Supplied in a beautiful presentation box in its own dust protector complete with English Pewters iconic Beefeater logo.

Inspired by the traditional designs and fine craftsmanship from our forefathers we continue this fine tradition of quality pewter manufacturing right here in the heart of Sheffield, England.
      Pewter is an alloy of tin (which is the 4th most precious metal in common usage after platinum, gold and silver) with a small quantity of copper and antimony. It is completely lead-free. Pewter improves with age and doesn't rust or tarnish.

      This one pint tankard has a stunning mirror-like finish and is perfect for engraving.
      This pewter tankard is marked on the base with our company logo featuring our world 
      famous Beefeater touch-mark along with the wording English Pewter Made in Sheffield, England 
      This is a 1 pint King's Shilling heavy weight pewter tankard.
      It has a straight sided body with a glass base with a shilling in base. On the tankard is the legend of why glass bottom tankards were brought into us. The text shown is ' The King's Shilling, England's navy while being the life line for the small island nation were always short of trained sailros. To get more men to join the navy the press gangs were sent out to recruit men between the ages of 18 and 55 some would be knocked unconscious, threatened with a sword, pistol or musket, or plied with ale. Others would find a shilling at the bottom of their tankard of ale and since they were in possession for the king's shilling, they were in the navy. This led to landlords using glass bottom tankards.' It has a rope grip handle and this tankard is a thicker gauge, so is heavier than standard tankards. It is 14.5cm high and 8cm wide.
