The Act for 'Ascertaining the Measures for retailing Ale and Beer' became operational in September 1700 when the Commissioners of Excise issued to local authorities the standardized pint and quart measures with which ale mugs were to be compared and subsequently marked with a crowned WR mark. Although the capacities of stoneware mugs were difficult to judge before firing, and attempts were made to deliberately cheat by heavy potting and the inclusion of false bottoms, excise marks were applied to brown stoneware from 1700 to the end of the eighteenth century. The procedure is discussed by Adrian Oswald et al., English Brown Stoneware 1670-1900, London, 1982, p. 278, where illustrations of varying excise marks found on excavated wasters are included. The excise mark on the present tankard corresponds to a waster found at Vauxhall dateable to the early 18th century.
