Small Victorian Tankard - ID = "Michigan" 15077 pattern, part of the "States" series

(1/2) > >>

NevB:
This little tankard is only 4" tall and holds about 6fl.oz. I've read that a 6.15fl.oz. glass was introduced around 1910 but I think this is Victorian. I've searched the History of Molineaux and Webb site and elsewhere but found nothing similar.

NevB:
Possibly a custard cup?

Ekimp:
Probably no help but the shape (excluding handle) with the flared top, faceted sides, and bulbous lumps around the base reminds me of some biedermeier bechers. Maybe continental?

NevB:
Thanks Ekimp, I think it's English, possibly Davidson or Greener or one of many others, perhaps with a nod to the Biedermeier style.

Ekimp:
Ok, just a thought. Pressed glass isnít really my thing but think I shouldíve got the tumbler I saw today. Only 50p and felt nice in the hand, probably victorian...Iíve started passing on glass I used to get excited about  :o
