This exceptional antique George V sterling silver hip flask has a rectangular form with rounded corners.

The upper portion of the glass body is ornamented with an impressive crocodile skin covering.

This impressive antique hip flask is fitted with a plain domed fully hallmarked hinged cover, securing with a bayonet fitting.

This antique silver and crocodile skin hip flask retains the original hallmarked push fit drinking cup with original gilt interior.

This exceptional antique flask is a desirable size and volume.

This flask has been tested for watertightness and is ready for use.

To ensure the flask remains water tight, the cork should be moist and therefore fully expanded to provide an effective seal.

There are two recommended methods to ensure that the cork does not dry out and shrink:

Method One: Keep fluid in the flask at all times, and keep the flask on its side to ensure the cork remains wet.

Method Two: Fill the flask to the brim with fluid and close. Leave it like this overnight, or for 24 hours if possible, before use.
