A WW1 period Officers thick leather cased flask made by Army & Navy of Victoria Street. This is a rare piece of kit to find and would suit a high end collection.
The metal cased flask contains a blown glass interior which is retained in excellent antique condition. The original retained cork is protected by a small drinking cup engraved with the makers name, a crows foot/ broad arrow and makers address. The thick hide case is secured with two buckled straps, one for a shoulder strap, the other to secure the lid. Please note from my photographs that the straps are broken with the shoulder strap missing its exposed section. Both buckles are retained but the holes upon the lids strap are showing signs of deterioration.
The leather is also stained with surface cracking in places. The stiches are secure however and the case holds the flask securely, it is a perfect fit.The underside of the case is also stamped with the Army Navy logo, this is worn (mainly due to its placement under the bottom strap). All white blotches in the photos are light reflection not faults - my apologies. If for some reason this is not going to be possible please let know.
