Here is a large, handsome martial powder flask made for a percussion longarm. The name of “BATTY” is widely known in flask history since his “Peace” flask product enjoyed the longest run of manufacture of this type flask, covering 1847 to 1858.

This fine condition flask exhibits the conventional tear-shaped copper body that bears a military motif design. Flask measures 9” long and has a 4” wide swell. The body is constructed of copper; the collar is brass. The adjustable charger (spout) has been replaced with a fixed piece of copper tube. This is an old “fix” as the dark patina is a complete match.

Stampings are on the top of the flask and read “BATTY” / 1853”. Seams are strong and show no evidence of splitting or repairs. Top spring of the charging mechanism remains strong and functional.

Flask decorated with a military design that shows a droop-winged eagle facing to his left perched upon arrows and olive branches. Below this is a pair of clasped hands surrounded by an embossed oval of twenty stars. Directly below the stars is the military motif in panoply of flags, cannon, muskets and trumpets, all under a large shield device embossed with the letters “U S.” Two copper rings are attached to each side of the flask’s upper neck.

A very dark, rich patina envelopes the entire flask body and presents a pleasing and handsome appearance. Flask body has a few small dings along the seam from use and storage. This is a fine martial Batty Peace powder flask in good condition. [jet]  [ph:L]
