An Edwardian copper haystack 2-gallon measure, that has an official lead verification seal in the rim of E.R L.C.C - Edward Royal London County Council. The measure was used in taverns to truthfully measure ale or cider to protect society from fraud during trading transactions. With a largely illiterate population at the time, the interests of every citizen needed to be considered and cared for so stamped and sealed measures were used throughout the British Isles.
