Now that I have a 1940s china tankard I want more. And think the view above is one that I would appreciate. A George II silver tankard for a mere £7,750. It's on eBay right now. I think it's worth it. I am worth it. What beer would it have held two hundred years or so before Orwell daydreamed about The Moon Under Water? It was the year of the second edition of The London and Country Brewer. Stitch?
What Was 1736's George Orwell's Favorite Tankard?
