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


This fine antique George V sterling silver, snakeskin and glass hip flask has a rounded oval form.

The flask has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets.

The surface of the flask is plain and unembellished.

The upper portion of the glass body is ornamented with a snakeskin covering.

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

This George V flask retains the original full hallmarked detachable push fit drinking cup which has a gilt interior.

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.

Date: 1919


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 drinking cup and part hallmarks struck to the cover are all very clear.

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