Title Three-way powder flask by Sykes of Sheffield
Nationality British
Period c 1820-40
Sold

This was made for a small pocket pistol or perhaps a pepperpot revolver, the charge being no more than 10 grains of powder. It is marked 'SYKES' on its body and maintains much of the original brown finish to the copper and some of the original lacquer to the brasswork. The calibre of the ball compartment would have been approximately .40 inch.

It measures 3.25 inches approximately.

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
