A gorgeous vintage flask that has a Chrome (Chrome over brass) exterior and a glass interior. Circa late 1930s. The exterior features a Chrome "cage" Art Deco pattern and an interior glass flask. This flask is the traditional curved flask has a screw off cap. The cap features a ribbed detail at the top. The cap still has its original cork inside. The most magical part of the flask is the three vintage liquors it has embossed on its front (see photo #2 for an upclose image):

- Wee McKay Scotch Whiskey
- Early Times Pure Rye
- Silver Slipper Dry Gin

These vintage liquors are on a "scroll" shaped design in the middle of the flask. Extremely heavy in weight, this flask is solid. Truly a fantastic piece. We've included the original newspaper ad for this type vintage flask (see last photo).

Condition: Good vintage condition overall but with noticeable signs of age/wear. The Chrome is in good condition overall but does show areas of tarnish and plating loss and age. The glass is completely in tact with no chips or nicks. The cork inside the cap is in excellent shape. Here's a full summary:

1) There's general age and "surface wear" in a number of places including wear to the Chrome (mostly to the bottom of the flask but also on the top part of the flask on either side of the screw cap area) - see photo
2) There's mild tarnish in a few area
3) The "cage" exterior is also in very good shape. **Please note: this was applied and has a "seam" on one side that appear to be a crack; it's not a crack but "seam" (which is how the cage was ultimately put over the glass flask when it was created)....please see photo #6 for reference.
4) The screw cap has a few micro small, show dings on the very top
4) The top of the flask (the shoulders) show minor age and wear

In short, this antique flask is in good vintage condition overall but with noticeable signs of age and wear... truly a magical hip flask.

Hallmarks: "Germany"can be found on the bottom of the flask in small letters

Measurements: Approx 6 1/2" tall x 3 1/2" wide
