I have just received this tankard and I'm really impressed with the quality for the cost - I have seen more or less the same product elsewhere at a higher price. It arrived well packaged in a plain black cardboard box (easy to wrap!) inside an outer box, and is in perfect condition - shinier than anticipated and the patter is really clear. Although it isn't heavyweight, it doesn't feel at all cheap and the handle is attached firmly. It has a pewter mark and makers mark on the base. Really pleased :-)
Very attractive tankard with a nice, intricate Celtic design. And good value for money.
My only quibbles (hence the 4/5) is that it feels a bit lightweight and fragile for everyday use - only time will tell I guess. Also, I feel that the tapered end of the handle's scroll could've been rounded off instead of finishing off with a rather sharpish point.
I bought this item as a gift for my boyfriend, 2-3 years ago and it's still amazing. It got some dark marks but it's normal for pewter and it doesn't look bad. The design does look a bit fainter after all the washing and use but it's still great. He still uses it on a daily basis for pretty much any drink haha
