Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Hip Flask by Mordan & Co.

About

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver hip flask made by Sampson Mordan & Co., part of our wine and drinks related silverware collection. This fine antique Victorian sterling silver hip flask has a rectangular form with rounded corners. This impressive antique silver hip flask has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets. The surface of the flask is plain and unembellished. The hip flask is fitted with a plain domed, hinged bayonet cover encircled with bands of plain applied moulded decoration. This exceptional flask was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Sampson Mordan & Co. This flask has been tested and is water tight. To ensure the flask remains water tight, the cork should be moist and therefore fully expanded to provide an effective seal. There are two recommended methods to ensure the cork does not dry out and shrink: Method one: Keep fluid in the flask at all times and keep the flask on its side to ensure the cork remains wet. Method two: Fill the flask to the brim with fluid and close. Leave it like this overnight or 24 hours if possible, before use. Condition: This antique Victorian hip flask is a superior gauge of silver as to be expected of this maker, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the flask and part hallmarks to the cover have wear in keeping with age and location. Dimensions: Length 17.7 cm/7", width 10.6 cm/4.2" depth 3.2 cm/1.3". Weight: 10.2 troy ounces/318g. Maker: Sampson Mordan & Co. Date: 1899. Origin: London, England. Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
