This fine antique Victorian sterling silver hip flask has a rectangular form with rounded corners.

This impressive antique silver hip flask has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets.

The surface of the flask is plain and unembellished.

The hip flask is fitted with a plain domed, hinged bayonet cover encircled with bands of plain applied moulded decoration.

This exceptional flask was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Sampson Mordan & Co.

This flask has been tested and is water tight.

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 over night, or 24 hours if possible, before use.
