We have today an unusual item up for auction: an antique pewter IMDO decilitre measuring cup. Great old Hallmarks
This old measuring tool stands 4.5" tall, measures 2.25" in width and has a depth level of 3 - 3/16".
There is a hand written label on the base that seems to indicate that this piece may be French in origin.
It has a small spout with a thumb-opened lid that opens / closes smoothly. It is stamped DECILITRE on the handle.
We here at the store do not know whether this measuring cup was used in a bar or pub or possibly in an a laboratory. There are circular punches around the upper edge with letters / marks within them which may be a yearly certfication of some sort by a weights & measures inspector.
Fascinating to look at and interesting to speculate about, this old measuring tool is in very good condition and is sure to evoke many a "What is THAT?" conversation by one's friends / colleagues.
Acquire this piece of Franco / Anglo history today!
