Antique Georgian hallmarked solid sterling silver spirit flask measuring 6″ (15 cms) tall x 2 1/2″ (6.5 cms) and hallmarked for London 1768 with the silversmiths mark for William & Aaron Lestourgeon.
It’s in great condition with just a couple of minor marks – any dark marks you can see in the photos are just reflections from the camera.
It has tapering shoulders and a screw fastening lid. The cup slides on and off just fine and retains the original gilding.
On one side of the flask there is an applied hound/dog and it weighs 228 grams.
This is a super item which is quite unusual and in great condition bearing in mind it’s nearly 250 years old.
