Description


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


This impressive antique silver hip 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 angular upper portion of the flask is fitted with a plain circular hallmarked hinged cover with bayonet fitting, enabling side pouring.


This impressive Scottish silver hip flask retains the original fully hallmarked detachable push fit drinking cup which conjoins the body via the upper portion; this is a fine and unusual feature of a hip flask and indicates the high quality of the piece.


This flask has been tested for watertightness and is 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 silver hip 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.
