Small powder flask
3 Attachment(s)
Hello everyone

It is a small powder flask with the copper body and the nickel nozzle. The dispenser is graduated for 12-11-10 without any denomination. It has no mark, except number 2 in the mouthpiece

Affectionately. Fernando K

Nice little powder flask, Tocayo.
Most probably continental. The measure units 10-20-30 are not consistent with drams used by Anglo Saxons, but with grains (granos). It will have to be either Spanish or (more probably) French.

Hi Fernando.

What a cute little pocket flask. And judging by the flask head, appears to be very good quality. Similar to the types you see in cased pistol sets of the early 19th Century. Although this one, with it's style of flask head, seems to be closer to the second quarter of the 19th Century. It sure appears to be in great shape and very attractive.
Unless made by the famous "Dixon", most of these flasks during this period seem to be unmarked. Even high quality ones like this. Looks like a true "gentleman's" item. LOL
