Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver hip flask has an oval rounded form.


The surface of this Victorian hip flask is plain and unembellished.


This impressive antique silver flask is fitted with a plain circlar domed hallmarked hinged cover encircled with a ribbed border and securing with a bayonet fitting.


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


This solid silver 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 the renowned London silversmiths Charles Asprey & Charles Asprey junior.
