This has a quart capacity being standard measure in taverns in the 18th and early 19th century, it is still a legal measure today but very few pubs have glasses or tankards beyond the stanard pint capacity.
These are wonderful to use and the perfect gift for the man with almost everything, just remember not to leave it behind on the bar.
