Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver flask has an ovoid bottle shaped form.


This impressive flask has a plain cylindrical sterling silver mount with a hinged circular plain domed cover with a bayonet fitting.


This Victorian flask is fitted with the original hallmarked push fit sterling silver beaker.


The beaker retains the impressive original gilt interior.


This Victorian flask has been tested and is water tight and ready for use.


To ensure the flask remains water tight, the cork should be moist and therefore fully expanded to provide an effective seal.


There are two recommended methods to ensure that the cork does not dry out and shrink:

Method One: Keep fluid in the flask at all times, and keep the flask on its side to ensure the cork remains wet.

Method Two: Fill the flask to the brim with fluid and close. Leave it like this overnight, or for 24 hours if possible, before use.


Date: 1893

Condition


The mount of this antique flask is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The glass is in perfect condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the beaker are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
