A stunning silver-plated antique flask by Meriden, early 1900s. This flask is nothing short of stunning and has a magical feel to it. Extremely heavy in weight, this flask is solid and well-crafted. It features a Greek scene of a Greek figure holding a spear and various animals (a panther, a ram). The top and lower section of the flask features an Art Deco thick "ribbed" pattern. It has a raised floral Repousse style design and the screw-on cap serves as a "shot glass" and expands/collapses. Truly a breath-taking piece. We've included an image of the original catalog ad for Meriden flasks, see last photo.

Condition: Great antique condition. The silver-plating is in excellent condition and vibrant. The silver-plating is a true vibrant silver tone; any gold hue you see is from the camera's flask. No dents or dings. There's some mild/general surface wear (i.e. very subtle but noticeable on the bottom of the flask) and also some mild tarnish in a few places. The cap screws on tightly.

**Please note: we have not tested the collaspible shot glass for leakage.

**Please Note: we typically do not test our flasks for leakage. We offer a variety of vintage flasks (both usable as well as collectible/display only). We are happy to put our flasks through a thorough leakage test (which involves filling it with liquid and rigorously shaking it) -- please message us if you'd like us to test this particular flask. Cheers!

Hallmarks: "Meriden B. Company" can be found on the bottom of the flask along with a hallmark of a balancing scale as well as "16" and "USA"

Measurements: Approx. 5 1/4" tall by a tad over 3 1/4" wide
