Title Rifle powder flask
Nationality British
Period c 1860
Sold

Marked 'G.&J.W.HAWKSLEY, SHEFFIELD'. This flask would typically have been used with .451 Whitworth rifle or a Westley Richards monkeytail rifle. There are three settings for one dram, one-and-a-quarter drams, and one-and-a-half drams.

Nice example with much original finish and some medium rusting to small area of spring; copper body with brass fittings. Some original lacquer, both to head and body.
