Gentleman's Hip Flask.
A very nice silver spirit hip flask with the top half covered in leather with a crocodile skin pattern with level viewing windows cut into the sides. The flask with hinged lid with screw bayonet fitting with monogram initials, bottom with a removable silver drinking cup. Both pieces carry the mark 'JD & S' and the hall mark Sheffield, cup dated (h) 1900, top (i) 1901. The flask is in excellent original condition.
The JD & S is the most probably the mark of James Dixon & Sons, but could be another Sheffield manufacturer, James Deakin & Sons.
