Measuring cone made in Newbury

Accession Number:


This cone shaped measure was made by Stephen Knight who started working as a tin and copper smith in 1864, working out of Cheap Street in Newbury.  This type of measure had different uses depending on who it was made for.  They were popular with brewers as the copper would not affect the taste of the ingredients while being easy to clean and repair.
