English Pewter Pirate Spirit Measure


For centuries, explorers have been lured by the secrets of the sea. The ‘Golden Era’ of exploration was between 1488 and 1597 when Europeans began exploring the world by sea. New discoveries and treasures were found causing tension and conflict within Europe.

During the reign of Queen Elizabeth, she encouraged the development of a supplementary navy. These ‘privateers’ or ‘sea dogs’ such as Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Francis Drake were used to patrol both the Caribbean and Spanish Coasts to raid the Spanish treasure fleets returning home. This allowed her to distance herself from their raiding activity while enjoying the benefits of their plunder.

Expertly crafted from high quality pewter, the two sided single and double spirt measure has an attractive finish which is guaranteed not to tarnish over time. The side of the measure is then adorned by superbly intricate pewter skull and crossbones to give the item its unique appearance.

An original and attractive gift for that loved one with a sense of humour and a fondness for a drink and tale.

Pewter is perfect for everyday use and with the minimum of care it can retain its wonderful finish.

It should be NEVER be washed in a dishwasher the chemicals in the detergent will react with the pewter and ruin the finish.

We recommend washing by hand in hot soapy water and dried with a soft cloth.

When drying your pewter, keep the direction of the cloth in a straight up and down motion, never in circles.

Pewter is a soft metal and will easily scratch with a hard cloth.
