EXCELLENT FLASK FOR THE COLT “BABY DRAGOON” REVOLVER

$350.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 30-2189

This very nice copper and brass flask measures about 4-inches tall from base to top of the spout and bears an eagle in high relief on either side. These were made to accompany Colt’s Model 1848 “Baby Dragoon” Revolver (in collector parlance,) the first pocket model revolver made by Colt at his Hartford factory. The five-shot revolver was .31 caliber and came in a variety of barrel lengths. Colt made about 15,000 of them from 1847 to 1850, when they were superseded by the 1849 Pocket Model. They are highly sought after and strongly connected with the early west.

The flask is the early “eagle on hummock” flask usually associated with the Baby Dragoon and while there are some variations in the die work, they can be distinguished from the later pocket model flasks by the absence of a shield in the central motif. This one is in excellent condition. There are some small handling marks and stains, and one slight indentation over the eagle’s head only visible in a raking light, but no dents, dings, or open seams. It has very pleasing, untouched, age patina to the brass top and copper body, blue remaining on the spring, which is functional, and excellent detail to the raised eagle.  [sr]
