PISTOL POWDER FLASK WITH FLORAL DECORATION

$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-1940

A small copper body powder flask featuring a raised, rounded palmette topped with a dot and north star design in on each side. The brass top and spout are in place and secure, as is the functional thumbpiece and spring. The body has a pleasing, deep copper colored, aged patina. The brass top and spout have a medium tone. There are some dark spots on the top flat in the coil of the spring, some of which will probably clean. There are no dents or open seams. This is typical of flasks supplied with nice cased percussion pistols in the first half of the nineteenth century and show an increasing sophistication in the die-worker’s art.  [SR]
