If it's only 5-in high, it seems unlikely that it would hold a pint. Can you measure the volume

Lancer Pint tankard is also the same high and hold same volume (in the book 1 pint tankard is 5 inch high.)

So this a 1 pint Britannia tankard then.

I suggest you measure the volume because David said

I'm wondering if I should check out the jug capacities. The Lancer pint tankard is indeed 5in. tall, so I would expect the Britannia to be similar. However, it could be that the Britannia jug, with a higher top edge and a lip is taller because of this. Also, you never fill jugs to the brim, but you would  a tankard (before measured marks were introduced on over-sized glasses).

Ming, I can't put my hands on the Britannia 'pint' jug right now, but it should be just under half litres if you have no imperial measure to hand.

I have put half litre of water into the tankard and it just fit. So it is 1 pint capacity.
I think Keith got a Britannia Jug so you can get him to measure it.

If a half litre just fits, then one pint will spill over the lip!

A pint is 564mls. (according to milk bottles anyway!)
