PRODUCT DESCRIPTION  
Beautifully engraved Certificate from the Tabard Inn Book Company issued in 1913. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a wonderful vignette of the Old Inn from the 19th Century. This item has the hand signature of the company's president and treasurer. It is over 104 years old.

The Inn was named after the famous Tabard Inn from Shakespearean Times. In the 1590's, Southwark was a suburb, across the Thames from London. As such, it was home to everything that was prohibited in London. While this includes such disreputable amusements as bear-baiting, Southwark is remembered mostly as the site of the public theatres, like Shakespeare's Globe (public theatres were also not permitted in London). (The Globe itself was not built until 1599, however; until then, Shakespeare's plays were being performed at the Theatre.)

Southwark was also the home of many honest citizens, and a popular stopping point for anyone traveling across London Bridge. The Tabard Inn, with a centuries-old reputation, thus hosted a variety of travelers, as well as its own regular clientele.
