20th Century Silver Plated & Leather Hip Flask, James Dixon & Sons, c.1900

Sold Sold
  • Description
    A stunning hip flask made by James Dixon and Sons. Made out of glass and then mounted with crocodile leather with a silver plated bayonet locking mechanism and removable cup, these hip flasks were extremely popular around the turn of the last century and this particular model would have been one of the most desirable items for a gentleman of the time. However it is the size that makes it particularly rare. Most hip flask would have contained less than half a pint of the owner’s favourite drink but this oversized model contains three quarters of a pint and the size difference is obvious to see in the flesh as it stands at an impressive 18cm (over 7 inches) in height.

    James Dixon and Sons was founded in Sheffield in 1806 and quickly became one of the major manufacturers of the industrial revolution. They were a major producer of pewterware, electroplated Britannia metal, silverware and electroplated nickel silver. Their registered trade mark since 1879 was a Trumpet with a Banner hanging from it. Although registered in 1879, the "Trumpet with Banner" logo was used at times before registration and appears on some of their silver plate pieces. They were one of the foremost names in EPNS and sterling silver tableware including silver tea services and hollowware pieces. They also made silverware serving pieces and had a wide catalogue of patterns. Their tea sets and hollowware pieces produced in silver are very valuable as antiques.
