Not a single nip nor chip on that elaborately elegant flask's cut edges, and what it does with light is just stunning. Just in from Paris, this gorgeous old thing dates c.1850-70, Napoleon III era. The tiny boar's head mark is the French control for .800/1000 pure silver and the mount is vermeil (18k gold layer on silver). Hinged, it operates smoothly, is beautifully crafted.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type - no chips on that superb body, and is clean and clear throughout. but that stopper is stuck in the neck. I have not done anything to try to remove it. Someone must have, since it has a little bit broken away from likely prying. Rick sometimes has luck soaking those out with a little oil. If he can get it out safely, I'll annotate the listing, but we're listing it just as it arrived to us. Measurements are noted on the listing photos. It is 4.5" long.
