Known as a 'Lion peg' tankard due to the carved detail and method of construction, this tankard would have been produced purely for ceremonial purposes, commonly weddings. The main body is turned from a single piece of burr birch wood and incorporates three carved feet. The domed lid, also turned from one piece of wood, has carved Nordic foliate designs over the top and a carved lion thumb plate attached. The C-shaped handle is attached internally by wooden pegs and is decorated with a Nordic foliate design.
