This very fine drinking flask is unusually and realistically modelled as a gun powder flask. The main body is engraved with bright cut borders, as well as a contemporary Crest, with script initials below. The reeded cap unscrews so that the contents could be decanted and a crescent shaped bright cut cup can be removed from the base to use to drink from. The flask is unmarked but was almost certainly a special commission, which went directly to the client. It is in quite excellent condition and is of the finest quality. The interior of the cup is gilded.

Length: 4.75 inches, 11.88cm.
Width: 2.4 inches, 6cm.
