From the movies! Ex: stock of Ken Paul Ltd. who supplied the majority of props for the English movie industry during the 50s-90s. Imperial half-pint dating to about the 1860s and earlier. Banded tapered form with raised foot. Marked ½ PINT with Victorian control mark for “29” for 1866, the 29th year of Victoria’s reign. Some dents and distortion as typical and perhaps spottable in some old English movies, as many of his prop items are.
