Here we have an early 19th Century tinware ale slipper with signs of the original paint still visible in places made circa 1820-40. This would have been used for warming ale or flip in an open coal fire, warm ale was a popular drink during the 17th - 19th centuries when heated on its own or mulled with spice and sugar, thought to be healthier drunk warm. Rum or brandy was added to create flip. This piece is in reasonably good condition for its age and has been well used. With definite signs of age there are no cracks or breaks found.
