Description and Details
This excellent Georgian solid silver hip flask was made by silversmith Archibald Douglas of London in 1835.
Made in the late Georgian period, this flask showcases an array of superb craftsmanship techniques used in the era. The exterior features a spectacular engine turned design with the top section fully hand engraved with a crisp acanthus leaf design.
The lid features additional engine-turned designs to complement the body and a Cormorant bird on top. The lid remains in excellent condition with its original cork and a leak-free screw down closure.
In hand, the craftsmanship and quality are ever more apparent with the crisp and sharp detailing of the exterior and the overall weight and sturdy feel in your hand.
The hip flask has been fully hallmarked on the base of the flask.
