Old London, 19oz (Standard grade)

The Old London is a very traditional tankard style that hails from (you'd never guess) the pubs of London, England.  It's a very appealing shape and the narrowed  rim is practical too:  Not only does it bring a level of rigidity to the cup that is greater than any of our other standard grade tankards, it's also great for concentrating the aromas from many styles of beer.  

More to the point remember this tankard's heritage - regular's at any pub expect certain styles of beer to have a proper head, and delivering that is critical to the  pub-owner's business.  If your beer style is even a little bit inclined to produce a head, then the narrowed rim of this tankard will deliver that every time.

    I have a sentimental mug that has a broken glass bottom. I’ve sent it for repairs twice and it’s never fully sealed, so I decided to get a new one (Father’s Day gift to myself). I found Crafted Cup online and contacted them on June 10 to find out when this particular mug style would be back in stock. Gareth responded that night that he would make some in the morning. By June 11, it was available online and just 8 days later it arrived in New Hampshire, USA from Sheffield, England. The tankard is beautiful, the engraving is exquisite and best of all - no glass bottom!

    This is every bit a custom item; I have never seen anything like it—in terms of product and quality—in a store. It made a perfectly unique gift for my husband. He loves it!

    Gorgeous cup, lightning fast shipping

    Posted by Belinda on Oct 6th 2019

    I honestly don't know how Gareth does it. I ordered a custom engraved tankard 4 days before my wedding anniversary. I figured it would arrive a couple of weeks late to give to my husband, but it was my fault for procrastinating. Well, I was absolutely shocked when the package arrived FROM ENGLAND TO THE US in 3 days! Not only was I impressed at how quickly I received the cup, but the quality of it was outstanding as well. Just stunning! My husband loves it and I cannot be happier with my purchase!

    London Pewter Tankard

    Posted by Philip on Jul 17th 2019

    The tankard was bought as a retirement gift. He loved it and that was great. The size and shape were perfect. The most impressive thing though was the company and their customer service. It was a short order and I needed it quickly. The company were brilliant and I got it in plenty of time. Thanks

    The tankard is a lovely piece. The pewter is glowingly polished and flawless. The engraving is perfect. Customer service was above and beyond, thank you.

    This was a Christmas gift for my son. I didn't think for a moment you could get it to us this fast - in time to be wrapped for Christmas! Thank you!

    Easiest $50 I've ever spent.

    I'd suspected that with so many cup styles listed as "sold out," and with the company located across the pond, it'd take weeks, months, for the items to arrive. I contacted Crafted Cup early...a little too early, if I'm being honest. Early August for a Christmas present? But once Gareth got in touch with me, I decided to order them as soon as I could. Now that I've received the cups and drunken from one, I can say with confidence: sure, it's a damn good cup. It looks beautiful, it doesn't taint the flavor of the beer, and although it's more lightweight then I expected, it's certainly sturdy and solid enough. And you can see the handmade craftsmanship throughout the piece, with small nicks and welding-bubbles in places. (Not a detriment, mind you!) But you can read about the merits of the cups themselves from any of the bountiful reviews on this site, written by other loyal customers (whose ranks I've certainly joined), so with what little time I've got on this earth, I'll spare some to mention my experiences with Gareth, our emails, and how pleasant it was dealing with the customer service of Crafted Cup as a whole. He's to pewter tankards (rather a niche market, I'll admit) what Fox Creek are to leather jackets: the products can stand alone, certainly, just on the merits of their craftsmanship and quality. But both these companies stand behind their products, offering them to you with joy and pride. It's hard not to get excited about pewter mugs when speaking to Gareth. If, for some ungodly reason, I've managed to break this lovely Old London cup (doubtful), and need a sturdy replacement, I'll be coming straight back for another. On the other hand, if I need to send more gifts to any more beer-swilling manly-men in the near future, that'll be another reason to swing by and say "hi" to Gareth at the CCC. You, sir, have earned a customer for life.

    Good but difficult to clean.

    Posted by Stephen A. on Jun 14th 2017

    Looks good, really lightweight, but I'm finding it difficult to clean. maybe I need to buy polish? Crafted Cup response: Thank you for the feedback Stephen! Some people do use polish (please see our care page and definitely don't use silver polish) but to be honest we have never needed to. Dish detergent and a soft cloth have always done the job for us.
