Quart capacity, 6 ½” height with squared handle. The front with JW owner’s initials. The bottom with indistinguishable Pub name. Good patina, the handle, and back with some pitting. The private vessel of a regular which was kept at the pub for his use, much like moustache cups were kept at barbershops. The lack of government measure stamps identifies it as private and not belonging to the pub. The pub name assured that if it was left outside, where much pub socializing was done, it could be returned. From the Ken Paul movie prop stock. Until 2001, Ken Paul Ltd. was London's leading film prop supplier. Ken's shop was well known as a treasure trove of fine and eclectic antiques, including the occupied coffin clock used in The Rocky Horror movie, as well as a source for the less extraordinary. For nearly five decades it supplied props for virtually every English movie of note from Lawrence of Arabia to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as well as television shows including Masterpiece Theater and more recently, Absolutely Fabulous. Ken’s pewter was used in the Sherlock Holmes television series as well as a number of English movies during the 50s-90s.
