Description


This exceptional antique George V sterling silver hip flask has a plain rectangular rounded form.


The surface of the flask is plain and unembellished.


This impressive antique flask is fitted with a plain domed hallmarked hinged cover with bayonet fitting.


This antique hip flask retains the original fully hallmarked detachable push fit drinking cup, which has a gilt interior.


The underside of the drinking cup bears the retailer’s mark ‘Walker & Hall, Sheffield’ in addition to the volume marker ‘1/2 3/4 pt’.


This flask 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 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 24 hours if possible, before use.


Date: 1917

Condition


This antique silver hip flask is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The flask has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the neck and cup, in addition to the part hallmarks to the body of the flask, are all very clear.


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