Jack cups have been used since the 14th century to accurately measure liquids – often wine and spirits. It is reported that, in an attempt to increase tax revenue, Charles I reduced the size of the 2-oz. Jack, and consequently the 4-oz. Gill came tumbling after – so the childhood nursery rhyme goes. This cup is skillfully handcrafted by Master Brazier and gentleman, Peter Goebel. Tin-lined and food safe, the 1/4-cup Jack measures 2" tall by 1-1/2" in diameter.
