Penny is a handmade antique ale muller. -
Stylish vessel in a cone shape, with tubular riveted handles
This vessel once used to rapidly warm, ale, beer, cider, and wine on an open fire. Traditional way to drink these beverages.
Penny is an early Georgian piece. Evident of the construction and handle form.
Her barely visible back seam construction is also giveaway of her old age which was more identified in Georgina copper construction.
She has markings of letter R and a bell shape
Her insides have signs of patina and verdigris
Penny is in great condition especially compared to others found on the open market
Today more suited as a candle snuffer, to cover whole candle like a cloche until the black smoke smoke disappears.
