This pewter measure for an Imperial gill was made around 1820 by William Scott, a pewterer based in Edinburgh's West Bow.

The pear-shaped measure has a domed lid. On the rim, the measure has excise marks for Edinburgh. 'W. Scott Edinr' is inscribed inside the lid, while scratched on the bottom are the initials of a former owner, 'H.R.' A copper boss featuring a castle and a lion has been added to the top of the lid.

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