Some Uncommon English Examples by Cyril C Minchin
Of all the English pewter flagons still in existence; possibly that shown herewith (Fig. r) must rank as the earliest. To use an often mis-applied word, it may very well be unique. This extreme rarity, an Elizabethan "round-bellied" flagon, probably dates from the last quarter of the 16th century, and is from Woodeaton Church, Oxon.
