Early 20th Century Edwardian Copper Two Gallon Haystack Measure

About

An Edwardian copper haystack 2-gallon measure, that has an official lead verification seal in the rim of E.R L.C.C - Edward Royal London County Council. The measure was used in taverns to truthfully measure ale or cider to protect society from fraud during trading transactions. With a largely illiterate population at the time, the interests of every citizen needed to be considered and cared for so stamped and sealed measures were used throughout the British Isles. For example, in 1309 it was decreed “The Standard of bushels, gallIons and ells shalI be sealed with an iron seal of our Lord the King ... And no measure shall be in any town unless it do agree with the King’s measure, and marked with the seal of the shire town" This measure has been inscribed on the front with ‘2 Gallons’, with a strong riveted handle, It’s in good condition, there are a few dinks on the measure but these add to the charm of it’s history.
