Description

Very attractive and striking London 1891 English hallmarked solid silver gilt large spirit flask with screw thread cork lined top and detachable silver drinking cup.
This lovely flask has a beautifully cut panel cut glass body with facet cut shoulders. The top is solid silver gilt, as is the heavy gauged removable drinking cup base. Both silver drinking cup and the top have very nicely and ornately engraved initials, and both are identically hallmarked.
This would have been an expensive piece when made.
The silver maker is Norman Marshall.
Size-6.25 inches high by 2.75 inches wide by 1.25 inches deep.
Weight-395 grams total, 100 grams silver only.
There is some slight nibbling just at the side corners of the glass body where it meets the cup, some handling wear to the silver gilt, and a tiny bump to the lid top.
In very good condition overall.
A lovely piece to use or display, and a great piece for the collector, and those who shoot, fish, and enjoy outdoor pursuits.
