Vintage George VI Art Deco / WW2 Solid Silver Hip Flask with Engine Turning (Code 2086)

  • £37500


Description

A solid silver hip flask dating to the George VI period and being unusual as a wartime produced item. It has a London hallmark for 1940, and of course due to the war much non essential production was switched to military purposes. It retains the Art Deco style of having engine turned sides, these are not only good for grip but they also help in hiding finger prints which tend to cover polished examples after a short time of use. It has a captive hinged cap with bayonet closing mechanism. The hallmark includes the makers mark for William Suckling of Vyse Street in Birmingham, the heart of the jewellery quarter.

Good order with minor wear and some light scratches as expected. A few very minor indents but nothing which is very noticeable. See images for general exterior presentation.
