    Been in my family prior to settlement in Australia ... have to be over 200 years old plus. Hand engraved, no idea where originated from nor value. Used for wedding toast for Pierce family .... including John Pierce who’s statue is outside Dublin post office. Anyone that can give me any history I would appreciate so much. Thank you

      Hi, FelicityMc. :-)

      Beautiful, and wonderful that they've been in your family so long.

      What interests me is that "3/4 PINT" marking. I'm more used to seeing that kind of marking on European restaurant or bar ware.

      I wonder whether that was standard practice for Irish beverage container makers (marking the container with the capacity) 200 years ago:

      I'm afraid I can't make out the hallmarks.

      Hi again, FelicityMc.

      I found this interesting collection of Dublin Date Letters marks:
