POCKET POWDER FLASK WITH PERCUSSION CAP MAGAZINE

$350.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 480-201

This is a pistol sized brass powder flask measuring about 3.5 inches tall and 1.25 across at the bottom. The flask goes from round at the base to oval at top. The base has a threaded cover that opens to reveal a short storage space, certainly for percussion caps. The upper section has a pivot cover at top for filling and a fixed measuring spout with spring and thumb latch in place. Both function fine.

The body shows slightly darker from thin remnants of a brown lacquer, worn from handling. The screw heads show light from handling as well. The brass collar and base have a medium brass color. This would be appropriate for a number of small pocket pistols. While this could have been part of a cased set, the combined functions of cap tin and powder flask suggest it was meant to be carried on the person, in case the first five or six shots from the pistol had not settled matters.  [sr]
