Always nice to have these old pieces actually dated....this one has both the date of 1898 and the ex owners name....John Mitchell, Braunton, engraved on it. The Flask stands 9 1/2" tall. The Bung has long gone...probably it was a cork originally.... but otherwise in lovely condition for age. Braunton is a village in North Devon near Barnstaple and it was in Devon that we found this wonderful old item just a few weeks ago.
