A nice example of a late Victorian hip flask.

It is generous in size and measures approximately 15 cm x 8 cm x 4 cm.

It is made of glass and formed into a traditional, bottle shape. The glass is in good order and has been checked for leaks.

The top half is covered with a nice, brown, leather covering. The leather has some markings associated with age a little loss around the collar; however, overall it is good condition and well adhered to the glass.

To protect the flask, the bottom has a pewter metal surround. In accordance with its age, this has some wear and marking; however, it has aged to a nice soft, silvery colour which adds character to the flask without being overly tired. It can be removed and used as a drinking cup, if required.

It features a sturdy, metal, screw cap which fits well. The cork is complete inside.

It was made by Philip Ashberry & Sons. Established in 1856, Philip Ashberry traded from Bowling Green St in Sheffield until the 1930s.

This would make an excellent gift for a drink lover or an addition to a collection.
