Vanguard tankard, 19oz (Superior grade)

(15 reviews) Write a Review


The Vanguard is a very desirable tankard, and one of our most popular. It’s very solid and the (roughly) 14oz of pewter that goes into this tankard gives it a great amount of strength.

The bowl is heavy, and looks it. The decoration is understated, but once this tankard catches the eye it holds it with the movement of light across it’s highly reflective surface (as the video below shows!).

The handle is a design that has stood the test of time - we don't know quite how old the mold used to make it is, but it's been passed down from pewterer to pewterer in the industry, and records show it's at least 300 years old.  That's old.

There’s little more to say about this tankard. It’s a perfect mug for a man who appreciates real craftsmanship, both in his cup and in it’s contents.

    Have wanting to indulge myself with a quality tankard for sometime.Called Gareth and was impressed with his product knowledge and his concern about getting me exactly what I wanted. Gareth recommended the Vanguard Tankard because it was heavier than others, beautiful polished surfaces and otherwise was exactly what I wanted. He also suggested that I have it monogrammed in old English script. When it was received by me It was just outstanding. Couldn't be happier. Will but some other products for friends as
    Christmas presents..
