Description


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


This impressive 1920s flask has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets.


The surface of this large solid silver hip flask is plain and unembellished.


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


The flask retains the original fully hallmarked detachable push fit drinking cup which features the original gilt interior.


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 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.


This exceptional example of antique silverware was crafted by William Henry Stokes & Arthur George Ireland of Stokes & Ireland Ltd.
