The inside does not have a rough feel to it but has a more'hammered' feel to it. The tankard stands at around 11.5cm (4.5 inches) and the base is approxiately 9cm (3.5 inches) in diameter. Although the tankard sits steady on a flat surface, it can be pulled back a little as the base, near the handle, is slightly bent upwards. There also appears to a small solder mark on the underside of the top part of the handle where it meets the main body of the tankard.
The assay office is London as seen in the second to last photo, with date letter'm' indicating the year 1747. The makers mark is partialy visible but belongs to Richard Gurney and Thomas Cook.
