This antique solid copper tankard shape measure would have been used in a European tavern or pub to measure alcohol. It has an easy to grasp folded brass handle and a brass plate at the front incised 1 DL. A deciliter is a little less than 3-1/2 ounces.
The measure was obviously used for its intended purpose and has a few expected bumps and dings as shown, nothing excessive. It's 3-3-4 inches high at the lip by just over 2-1/2 inches diameter at the base.
