This handsome hip flask which has a detachable solid silver cup and hinged flip / bayonet top was made by renowned silversmith Walker & Hall in 1912.
The outer of the top half is covered in a stylish light and dark brown coloured snakeskin effect leather, there is a sight level on both sides and the flask is curved on one side so it slips into a pocket nicely making it a wonderfully tactile item.
The detachable cup has a gilt interior and is in beautifully clean condition. The bayonet top has been fitted with a new cork, the top seals well and does not leak.
A lovely clean and usable item that would make a wonderful gift.
