This gorgeous flask would be such a great addition to your period attire!

Based on its diminutive size, feminine design, and woman's silhouette stamped into the markings, I think it is meant for a woman.

I like to think it was once owned by a proper Victorian lady (with a wild streak), who passed it on to her Flapper daughter, who concealed whisky on her thigh, despite Prohibition:)

I don't know much about silver, but based on the markings, I believe it was made by Gorham (based in Rhode Island) in the late 1800's and is electroplated.

It measures 5.25" from the top of the lid to the bottom of the flask and 3.75" across the widest part.

The design is simply stunning: flowers engraved against a bed of leaves with a very Art Nouveau vibe. The best part is the archer motif engraved in the center top and repeated on the lid. I think it is very Diana the Huntress-esque!

Very good condition. It would be perfect if not for a dent in the upper left side. I believe this damage is old, not new, because the tarnish is even across the piece, not lighter or shinier across the dent.

It probably slipped from a woman's fingers, just as she finished taking a nip, and struck the bedpost. Or, maybe she caught her cheatin' man in a saloon, flung it at him, and it hit the edge of the bar as he ducked!

Carry it, enjoy it and add to its history:)

I fully guarantee this flask dates from the 1800's and that it is otherwise as described.
