Glasgow pewter flagon sometimes called a laver by Mathew Connel 1774-98, with his large initialled sailing ship touchmark inside the base. These lidded and spouted flagons seem to have been made more commonly than their unspouted equivalents from Edinburgh. The typical body has a wide fillet, the almost flat lid with a keeper ring beneath, twin cusped thumbpiece and frontal spout. In very good condition but has ancient solder repairs to the handle attachments. A nice even mid-grey original surface patina. Capacity 82 fl oz. 10" overall height, and 8⅜" to rim. 4⅝" rim, and 6⅛" base diameters. 1634g weight. REF: C3831
