Description


This exceptional vintage George VI sterling silver hip flask has a rectangular form with rounded corners.


This impressive 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 hinged bayonet cover encircled with a band of applied ribbed decoration.


The underside of the flask bears the volume marker '3/4 Pt' in addition to the full hallmarks and registration number '046'.


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

This vintage sterling silver hip flask is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality for its type and in exceptional presentation condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the flask and part hallmarks to the interior surface of the hinge and cover are all clear in keeping with age and location.


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