Description


This exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver hip flask has a rectangular form with rounded corners.


This impressive antique 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 hip flask is fitted with a plain domed, hinged bayonet cover.


The underside of the flask bears the maker/retailer's mark 'A. Barrett & Sons, 63 & 64 Piccadilly'.


This flask has been tested and is water tight.


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 over night, or 24 hours if possible, before use.


Date: 1908

Condition


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

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

The part hallmarks to the cover are illegible, in keeping with age and location.


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