Here is a medium sized powder flask made for a percussion pistol or longarm. This excellent condition flask from the 1850s exhibits the conventional tear-shaped copper body. The body is plain with no embellishments. Device measures approximately 8” long and has a 3 ¾” wide swell. This flask is equipped with a plain screw-off flask top, brass collar, adjustable spout, and spring-loaded thumb stopper. Stampings on the spout are strong and read “DIXON & SONS”.

Seams are strong and show no evidence of splitting or repairs. There were never any sling swivels on the sides. The spring of the charging mechanism still operates.

An even bronze patina covers the entire flask body and presents a pleasing and handsome appearance. An nice example of mid-century powder flask.   [jet]
