SOLD - Sterling Silver Hip Flask - Antique George V

A fine and impressive antique George V English sterling silver hip flask with Irish interest; an addition to our wine and drinks related silverware collection

SKU: W6236

SOLD - Sterling Silver Hip Flask - Antique George V
SOLD - Sterling Silver Hip Flask - Antique George V


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

The anterior surface is ornamented with a bright cut engraved regimental coat of arms of the Kingdom of Ireland surmounted with a coronet, above the inscription ‘North Irish Horse’*.

The reverse surface of the flask is plain and unembellished.

This impressive antique flask is fitted with a plain domed hallmarked hinged cover with bayonet fitting; the cover was crafted by John Dixon & Son in 1948.

This 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 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.

* The North Irish Horse was a initially a yeomanry unit of the British Territorial Army raised in the northern counties of Ireland in 1902, following the second Boer War.

Date: 1918


This antique hip flask is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The bright cut engraved regimental coat of arms is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the neck, cover and part hallmarks to the body are all very clear; the maker’s marks to the body and neck are slightly rubbed but legible.

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