This handsome spirit hip flask which has a detachable solid silver cup and hinged flip / bayonet top is made by renowned silversmith James Dixon & Sons in 1942.
The outer of the top half is covered in brown textured leather, there is a sight level on both sides and the flask is a good compact size, making it a wonderful usable item.
The bayonet top seals well so does not leak. The detachable cup has a gilt interior and is in stunning condition.
The flask which holds 1/4 of a pint has a wonderful tactile feel and sits nicely in a pocket. A lovely clean and usable item that has not been monogrammed that would make a wonderful gift.
