Royal Selangor - Lewis Tankard | Peter's of Kensington



Royal Selangor
Lewis Tankard

Product Number: 455684
PRODUCT DETAILS
Since 1885, Royal Selangor have been making beautiful pewter accessories for the home – from incense burners to wine decanters – all designed in order to enrich and add an artful air to your home. To this day, Royal Selangor continues to be a thoroughly handmade business, with their pieces being hand-cast and later hand-finished and polished by experienced pewtersmiths.

A project with the British Museum, this collaboration draws on the public institution’s vast collection of over 8 million artefacts, documenting the story of human culture from its earliest days to the present. Each piece is marked with the British Museum logotype.

Unearthed on the Isle of Lewis in 1831, in the wilderness of Scotland’s remote Outer Hebrides, the 12th century Lewis chessmen are exquisitely carved in walrus ivory, and very likely of Scandinavian origin. Of the seventy-eight pieces known today, the British Museum’s collection of sixty-seven are one of its most popular attractions.

Derived from designs carved into king chess pieces, reeded tendrils disgorged by beasts’ swirl around the tankard’s body, its handle terminating in the figure of a dragon biting itself. Whether mead or IPA, pewter keeps that quaff crisp.
