A stunning silver-plated antique flask by Meriden, 1920s. This flask is simply stunning and features a screw cap that also serves as a jigger/shot glass. You gently pull on the cap's outer ring and it turns into a shot glass. This round flask features the most stunning Art Deco etched scene of Quail birds and trees. The etched scene has a "raised" texture to it. The sides of the flask feature an Art Deco "scalloped" pattern. Truly a stunning Art Deco flask that has a magical feel to it. We feel like that about most of our Art Deco flasks as there's a magic to the way they were crafted. Truly a breath-taking piece.
Condition: Good vintage condition with noticeable signs of age and wear and light scratching inline with a silver-plated flask that's 100 years old. The cap screws perfectly and tightly. The silver-plating is in good shape but does show general surface wear/age and tarnish. There's also some wear/loss to the silver-plating in a few areas (including the back of the flask, along the outer edges as well as the very bottom of the flask). There's tarnish to the very top interior of the screw cap. There's one small ding on lower left-hand side of the flask. The very bottom of the flask shows surface wear/light scratching. There are a few other areas that might look like a super shallow ding but aren't; this flask was hand-forged and will have super tiny imperfections to the exterior body. Overall, this antique flask is in good vintage condition and displays beautifully.
