Description

Lovely antique solid hallmarked silver hip flask with removable cup. A really usable size to fit a pocket. It holds 8 fluid ounces of liquid. Made by Thomas Johnson I and retailed by Asprey of Bond Street which is stamped to the base of the cup. It carries the London hallmark with the date letter for 1861. The cup is clearly hallmarked to the outside, I can't see a mark on the cap but it has tested as silver, it may be the marks are inside and covered by the cork which is often the case.

It comes with a cork lined screw cap and removable cup, which fits snuggle with the flask body. The cup is gilded inside and is in great condition.

Will be sent in a free gift box and will also include a free stainless steel funnel for filling and cleaning your flask to avoid spillages from spoiling the condition.

We are happy to answer any questions.
