Seller: 50-quid ✉️ (1.930) 100%, Location: Greater London, GB, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 266767476675 MEDIDA DE PELTRE ANTIGUA HEREFORD COUNTY 1⁄2 PINTA IMPERIAL c.1830 ANDREW THOMPSON . A rare antique ½ pint imperial measure pewter footed measure/tankard with Hereford County marks. It has the initials ‘AT’ within the letter ‘H’. At first glance this appears to be an upward pointing arrow, but in fact the ‘H’ is for Hereford County and the ‘AT’ is for Andrew Thompson who, in 1835, was the inspector for the whole of the county of Hereford. *** Please see the information below which I found in a document on the internet. It also has an early Victoria crown and VR mark and ‘½ pint’ which would have been added later. The word, which I have taken to read ‘imperial’, is worn. To the top of the rim it measures 10cm x 7cm base diameter. Condition: It has wear with marks, dents and bends in keeping with age and use. Please see all my photos as they form part of the description. Please contact me if you require further information or more photographs. Thank you for viewing my listing. *** Hereford County had 11 Hundreds which were not weights and measures inspection districts. In 1835 there was only one inspector for the whole county: his name was Andrew Thompson. His initials were used within the letter 'H' as the county's earliest verification mark. The ‘A’ over the ‘T’ looks like an upward pointing arrow. See Google Herbert History.
