A large George III Scottish silver Flask, with detachable gilt-lined beaker, Edinburgh 1818 by William and Patrick Cunningham. The flask is engraved with the crest and arms of William Thomson Honyman, 1797-1828, and underneath with a presentation inscription: 'To W. Thomson Honyman Esqr. of Mansfield, from his Affectionate Wife C. Thomson Honyman Jany 4th 1819.'
William Thomson Honyman died in Naples in 1828. As William Honyman, of Smyllum, Lanarkshire, he had married Catherine Thomson, the daughter of Andrew Thomson of Mansfield and Castlemains, in 1815. His wife had inherited these properties from her father upon his death in 1806 and Honyman added the name Thomson to his own.
For details of the family see www.newcumnockhistory.com

An attractive oval miniature of William Thomson Honyman, with his two children, is at present on offer at Ellison Fine Art and an image of that is appended with the images of the flask. See www.ellisonfineart.com
Good with very minor dents from the lid and chain.
