Antique Hip Flask


An early twentieth century silver plated, oval glass and black leather hip flask with a screw-cap top, most likely by James Dickson & Sons, Sheffield.  The clear glass body is half covered with leather, the lower half has a detachable silver plated EPNS cover that also acts as a cup, as depicted in the further images.

Height 14.5cm  Width 9.5cm  Depth 4cm

Country of origin: UK

Date of manufacture: c.1900

Materials: electro-plated silver nickel, leather and glass

Condition: good, considering its 120 years of use, with scratch marks and wear to the silver plating, and two small splits to the leather on the stitching, all of which add to its character and reflect its history.  There is also some staining to the glass, as shown in the further images.
