Antique English Victorian dovetailed copper one gallon sized haystack pitcher with handle, circa late 19th century. A verification mark signifies that the measure has been inspected by an official Weights & Measures Inspector and found to be of the correct capacity. It became a country-wide legal requirement to stamp all measures with a verification mark in 1835, though some areas such as the Cities of London and Westminster had being do so before this. Until about 1878 each town generally had its own style of mark. From roughly 1879 onwards a uniform style was adopted consisting of a crown, the monarch’s initials (ie VR, ER or GR) and a number which signifies the location. Measures were often inspected several times during their lifetime and thus can carry several verification marks. Sometimes at subsequent inspections the inspector merely stamped a two digit number signifying the year of re-inspection. Good Overall – Some dents/marks/oxidation; see pictures. 9.25″ x 10.75″ x 10.25 (Width x Depth x Height). The sooner you pay, the sooner you get your item.
