The pewter mug from the Manchester Arms measures approximately 4 4/3 inches and 3 3/4 inches in diameter at the mouth.
On the lip just to the left of the handle there is a “PINT” stamp, and to the left the makers mark, the letter “E”, a picture of a crown, and the letter “R”. Below that is the number “239” – the uniform verification number ER is for Edward VII, so the cup dates from around 1905.
