Welcome to Tnet.

There’ve been lots of those on fleabay, Etsy and other sites over the years. They seem to be made of brass, with some of them plated. Although modelled as a tankard, some sellers have described them as desk ‘pencil holders’, but that may be speculation. Presumably just a novelty souvenir/memorabilia item.

Almost all the sellers describe them as ‘rare’ (of course), often adding “I’ve only ever seen 2/3/4 of these” (they didn’t look very hard, then).

Average fleabay ‘sold’ price has been quoted as $52.48, with a low of $20.00 and a high of $79.99. On the other hand, you could take advantage of this seller’s remarkable offer and snap up a pair of them for $2,300

Probably made from Pewter

I have several that I cut up into small peices, then dissolve for the tin to make Stannous Chloride a testing solution that reacts with precious metals.

Pewter is a malleable metal alloy consisting of tin, antimony, copper, bismuth, and sometimes silver.
