Antique English Gun Powder Flask Bottle G & J W Hawksley Sheffield


Questions about this piece?


A beautiful antique copper gun powder flask / container with nice relief design. Flask decoration could be done for practical as well as artistic reasons. Fluted designs were visually appealing but also made flask surfaces sturdier and easier to grip. Fluted flasks were some of the most common types made during the nineteenth century. Large factories and small workshops alike provided customers with flasks bearing these distinctive designs. This brass flask was made by the major Sheffield, England firm of G. & J. W. Hawksley. This company, founded by brothers George and John William Hawksley, was well known for its fine craftsmanship and manufactured powder flasks for over four decades. It is in a good used condition, see the photos as a part of description.
