Pewter Wine Pitcher - Nimes, Circa 1700 flag

Object description :

"Pewter Wine Pitcher - Nimes, Circa 1700"
PITCHER with pewter shoulder, quarter-round foot and goblet and tasselled thumb.
Gauging mark affixed four times: large lily. (Let us remember in passing that these pitchers were the wine measures of the Ancien Régime. The capacity of those used in inns, drinking establishments, etc., had to be checked periodically by the royal or ecclesiastical power to ensure "good measure” to the consumer, but in fact, this regulation was little applied and the pitchers which carry gauging punches are very rare)
Height: 20.9 cm.
NÎMES, Circa 1700

Rare provenance
Piece obtained by the ancient technique of longitudinal cast iron also known as “shell casting” (For more details on this technique prior to the 18th century, consult my tutorial on the site indicated below)
