A neat early 1900s silver-plated antique flask. This vintage flask features a "snakeskin" embossed texture and a screw-on collapsible lid that serves as a shot glass and expands/collapses. Please note: this flask is monogrammed with the original owner's initials: T.F.D. Please see photo #3 where our finger is pointing. Truly a breath-taking piece.
Again, PLEASE NOTE: this flask is MONOGRAMMED with the original owner's initials: T.F.D. Please see photo #3 where our finger is pointing
Condition: Good/fair vintage condition with very obvious signs of age. We're including "fair" in the Condition summary as this piece is a bit rustic and shows age. Here's a full summary: 1) There's a good amount of tarnish that may or may not polish away (tarnish that's been in place for years can be stubborn 2) There's a very very shallow dent on the front, it's so shallow it was impossible to capture in a photo (it's on the lower section, below the monogrammed letters 3) There's superficial wear to the very bottom of the flask 4) Please note the photos of the opening of the flask. Again, this piece is rustic (early 1900s) and you can see where the metal was sautered around the flask's opening. The cork inside the cap is in great shape and completely in tact. The cap screws on well/tightly. In short, this monogrammed antique flask is in good/fair vintage condition with obvious signs of age. The snakeskin texture is stunning. Cheers!

Hallmarks: There are two very, very small hallmarks on each side of the opening of the flask (where you would pour the contents into): one is an "N" inside of parentheses and the other side has "Oz" (for ounces) -- we assume at one time it had a number next to it, for the ounce capacity but it's no longer visible Measurements: Approx. 6 1/4" tall by 3 1/2" wide
