Items for sale from an ECW re-enactor.

Cheeky, I thought you might be interested in the inkwell(?)

Please don't bid on the tankard - I'm going to try for it!

Got the Tankard - yes! 6.70 for a leather tankard is pretty good I'm sure you'll agree.

I'm not sure the pewter inkwell sold, but the dagger went for just 12.50! Should've put a bid in...

I was too late to bid, or to view a picture of th lot, and I missed the chance to bid, but no worries. I do purchase a lot of small stuff on ebay. I also trawl the web looking for new traders. Thought I would only buy pewter tankards at 50p from boot sales, for smelting. What you / we need are a couple of tigs. I'll see what I can come up with.



The wooden mug can be found at

Notice the stoneware tig has two handles. The idea is you can share the contents with your partner without dropping the mug. This can be found at

You can probably get a local potter to throw you one of these for between 8 & 16, but try and get him to make the slip run, (dribble down the sides). It looks more authentic if he can.

It's one of those things I've always fancied but never got round buying, a leather tankard.
I've got all sorts of drinking vessels but, in the end, I stick with the pewter tankard I bought back in the 70s most of the time, despite it having got a bit bent falling out of the car once. Sad

Well the tankard arrived today and it's in great nick. Only a half-pint tankard though so I might still go for something a bit larger in the future.

Why should it look more authentic if the sliip runs? Is there any reason why a seventeenth-century potter should be more slap-dash than his modern equivalent?

I'm not too sure where I heard it, but I've seen it on other pottery from the period.
