A stunning vintage silver-plated Towle "Drink Like A Fish" Hip Flask in the shape of a Piranha, circa 1980s, still in its original cloth bag and case. This flask features a screw top opening. The embossed detailing of the fish is simply incredible, from the scales to the fins. Towle started making this flask in the late 1800s up through the late 1980s. The earlier flasks/versions had cork inside the cap. Heavy in weight, this flask has a solid feel to it. Truly a gorgeous piece.

Maker: Towle

Hallmarks: "Towle" can be found near the opening/screw cap. ***Please note: there's also a decorative "scroll" design on the cap that most mistake for a monogram. It's not a monogram but purely a decorative scroll design exclusive to this flask brand.

Measurements: Approx 6 1/4" in length x 3 1/4" wide

Condition: Good vintage condition overall but with mild, noticeable signs of age including some general surface wear, mild tarnish, and some age/wear inside the cap (see photo). *Please note: this flask has a very subtle "concave" to the middle which is part of the design to mimic the shape of a Piranha/fish. In short, this vintage flask is in very good vintage condition. Truly a magical figural piece.

*Please Note: this flask has not been "tested" for carrying liquid contents, so we don't know how this vintage flask's silver-plating will hold up to, for example, sugary liqueurs, etc.

**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!
