Postcard of Measure.
© National Museums Scotland


This pewter measure for an Imperial half pint was made around 1826 by William Scott, a pewterer based in Edinburgh's West Bow.

The baluster measure has a flat lid and an 'embryo shell' thumb-piece. It is marked on rim with an imperial crown flanked by 'G.IV' (for George VI) and the triple-towered castle of Edinburgh below. On the interior of the lid is the maker's name 'W.SCOTT' and the date 1826.

There were at least two pewterers called William Scott working in the West Bow in Edinburgh in the late 18th and early 19th century.
