A very striking and smart sterling silver hip flask with an all-over engine-turned decoration to both the back and front.
The hinged lid requires a twist and lift action and reveals the cork within the lid to keep the precious contents.
The underside is signed by the top-notch silversmith, Mappin and Webb; It's a story that began in 1775, when Jonathan Mappin opened a silver workshop in Sheffield with a vision to create the most beautifully crafted silverware. It would see the company expand internationally, receive royal warrants and commissions from Monarchs around the world, and become synonymous with excellence, craftsmanship and all things truly greatly British.
Illustrious clients throughout the decades include Queen of France Marie Antoinette, the last Czar of Russia Nicholas II, Winston Churchill, Charles Dickens, Harry Houdini and Grace Kelly
There is also a full English hallmark for London 1929, the height of the Art Deco period.
