SOLD - Sterling Silver Hip Flask – Antique Victorian

Description


This fine antique early Victorian sterling silver hip flask has a plain bulbous form modelled in the form of a powder flask.


The surface of the flask is plain and unembellished.


The flask has a cylindrical screw fit cover encircled with a plain girdle.


This flask has been tested and is watertight 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: 1843

Condition


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

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the flask are all very clear.


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