Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.

This pewter measuring jug/tankard has been embossed/stamped with the word 'LITRE' across the front and heavily hallmarked with inspectors touch marks along the thumb rest.
I have left it exactly as I found it, without trying to clean it up, as I prefer the authentic patina which gives it a realistic, genuine look to match its age.
Solid and sturdy it weighs a chunky 1.4kgs! (3 lbs!) Its rectangular shaped handle, thumb latch, and bold, wide hinge are in perfect working order.
It stands 23cms (9") tall (to the top of the thumb catch) and is 14cms (5½") wide (to the handle.) It has been impressed several times around the top with letter punches, these could be either a makers/owners mark, or inspection marks to show that 'pewter duty' had been paid on this item.
It has clearly seen some action over the last 150+ years and has various 'dents and dints' to show for it. That's what makes it so utterly charming and irresistibly tactile.
Perfect for modern industrial interiors or medieval banquets! ......aged to perfection!.....
