A vintage silver-plated flask (by Apollo) with a stunning ribbed, hammered texture. There's a "smooth" square box on the front upper right where one can engrave initials, if they choose to. This flask has a magical feel to it. It's larger in size and features a "swing arm" that attaches the cap to the flask. The cap still has its original cork. Circa 1920s. Truly a neat piece.

Condition: Good/fair vintage condition with very obvious signs of age wear in line with a flask from 1924. We're pretty Type A about the exact condition of our vintage pieces, so here's a full summary:

- the silver-plating has a good amount of tarnish and wear that will likely not polish up to a bright silver. Please note: we do not polish our pieces as some buyers are very particular about as is condition.
- the cap has a good amount of dings/age (one side in particular, see photos #2 and #10) but still works/screws perfectly
- the cork is in good shape overall but does have one small spot of missing cork, see photo #5
- there's a ding on the back of the flask (lower right, see photo #6) and another very shallow/small smooth ding on the back of the flask (middle left) that was impossible to capture in a photo
- there are micro tiny flecks of red paint on the front left (see photo #9) that may or may not polish away
- threre's a spot of what looks like tiny scratches (likely how it was cleaned in the past) on the top of the swing arm

The swing arm and cap work perfectly. We're listing this 1920s flask is in "fair" condition due to the obvious signs of age and wear but it displays beautifully and has a magical feel to it.
