Large Sterling Silver and Crocodile Skin Hip Flask - Antique George V (1925)

£1,865.00

A magnificent, fine and impressive, large antique George V glass, English sterling silver and crocodile skin mounted hip flask; an addition to our silver mounted glass collection

SKU C1373

This magnificent antique George V sterling silver hip flask has a rectangular form with rounded corners.


The upper portion of the large glass body is ornamented with an impressive crocodile skin covering.


This impressive flask is fitted with a plain domed fully hallmarked hinged cover, securing with a bayonet fitting.


This large crocodile skin hip flask retains the original hallmarked push fit drinking cup.


The underside of the drinking vessel incorporates the volume marker '1 1/2 PT', in addition to the retailer's mark 'Drew & Sons, Piccadilly Circus W, Makers to the Royal Family'.


Such large, oversized examples are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.


This antique hip 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 that 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 for 24 hours if possible, before use.
