A Victorian cut glass silver mounted hip flask by George Edwin Walton, Birmingham 1896, of rounded rectangular form with hobnail decoration, with silver bayonet clasp cover and detachable stirrup cup, 12.4cm long
Overall good. Some small chips and abrasions to the facet edges of the hobnail decoration (largest of which is pictured). There is some abrasion to the glass around the opening (pictured). No other cracks, breakages or damage to the glass.
The cover shows moderate denting, scratching and wear commensurate with age and use. There is some signs of thinning and loss, and possible signs of solder repair (see pictures for illustration). Bayonet mechanism is working correctly, however the cover is slightly wobbly/loose. The cork is present but heavily worn, and there is a small cork piece loose in the flask (as pictured).
Moderate amount of small dents to the cup, moderate scratching and wear to the exterior and to the gilt interior. No splitting or signs of repair.
