Description

1960s Gaskell & Chambers Pewter 1/5 Gill Drinks Measure

This is a 1960s Gaskell & Chambers Pewter 1/5 Gill Drinks Measure.

It is marked on the rim with

  • a Crown and EIIR 668
  • 4 66

This seems to indicate that it was made in 1966 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

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.
