This exceptional antique George V sterling silver hip flask has a plain rectangular rounded form. This impressive 1930s flask has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets. The surface of the flask is plain and unembellished. This impressive antique silver flask is fitted with a desirable plain oval domed hallmarked hinged cover with bayonet fitting.The flask retains the original full hallmarked detachable push fit drinking cup which features the original gilt interior. This flask has been tested for watertightness and is ready for use.
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 overnight, or 24 hours if possible, before use.This antique 1930s flask is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The flask has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the body and drinking cup in addition to the part hallmarks to the neck are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
