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.
