The Flask is later engraved with a presentation inscription to Mr. William Riley of the Cambridge Music Hall in Commercial Road, London in October 1886. The presentation of this 'refreshment flask' to Mr. Riley on his departure to America is recorded in "The Era" (London, England), Saturday, October 23, 1886; Issue 2509.
‘Last Wednesday evening Mr. William Riley was presented by some of his friends with a handsome refreshment travelling case in solid silver, presumably for use on his voyage to America. Speeches were made by Mr. Page, who takes command of the Cambridge during Mr. Riley’s absence, by Mr. Godfrey, and by the recipient of the testimonial himself, and Mr. Riley’s popularity was distinctly demonstrated by the hearty good wishes expressed by all his staff.’
William Francis was a specialist 'case maker' who registered this mark on 20/08/1833 at 15, King Street, Clerkenwell.
