Victorian Spirit Measure

Postby Alexander » Sat Oct 05, 2002 11:22 pm

I have a half gill spirit measure which is stamped with the crown and VR 30 so I presume it was used in a pub in the Victorian era.
On the base it is inscribed ALBANY, and also JOHN McGLASHAN & Co GLASGOW who I presume was the maker.
Does anyone know the history of this company?
Were they in the whisky industry, or makers of utensils?
Regards,
Sandy

McGlashans made pub fittings.
