Description

1950s Harry Mason Ltd Pewter 1/4 Gill Drinks Measure

This is a 1950s Harry Mason Ltd Pewter 1/4 Gill Drinks Measure.

It is marked on the rim with

  • a Crown and G.R 6
  • 51

This seems to indicate that it was made in 1951 towards the end of the reign of King George VI.

It is in good vintage condition but has surface scratches. I haven’t attempted to polish it as some people prefer to do this themselves. It would make a lovely gift to a collector or as a retirement/ thank you present.
