This is a late Georgian English toddy lifter dating from the early to mid 19th century, c1830. Toddy lifters, of course, were used to lift measures of toddy, a popular drink at the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, from a serving rummer to a drinking rummer. The toddy lifter is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows some age related wear and tear. The toddy lifter has a plain neck down to an applied annular ring below which the neck and shoulders are cut with six vertical flutes. It then flares to a plain tapering cylindrical bulb and a flattened base. It measures 16.8 cm (6.7 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. A good example of a late Georgian toddy lifter weighing in at 160 g. (~ 5 1/2 oz.).
