Description

A excellent example of an antique sterling silver 2 piece hip flask and cup.

This flask is a heavy weighted prime example of Victorian workmanship, made by Edward H Stockwell, and retailed by Thornhill & Co, of New Bond St. Stockwell is a highly collected maker, and Thornhill & Co a highly respected retailer of the period.

This is a fine, premium quality example features a bayonet cap, mounted on a large oval kidney shaped body. The cup fits flush to the flask. A flask is of a generous size that has no engravings, and the heavy gauge suggests that this could be suitable for personalisation if desired.
