The case has 2 faded stamps: the initials, “C. D. P.” are on the top flap and “TERRY” is on the bottom. This quality case has earned its time in the huntfield and still looks great.
The double hinged, unmarked case (only stamped Made in England) has a pull ring and is probably a pewter alloy called Britannia metal. It has some pitting and other wear marks but is completely intact.
The beautiful, hand blown glass flask, has an electroplated nickel silver, hinged top, signed by James Dixon & Sons (founded in Sheffield, Eng, 1806) with their bugle & banner maker’s mark. The flask is in perfect condition.
The inner fittings insert perfectly. So there will be no annoying rattle as you gallop along, like you find with most of the newer cases.
Whether you are new to foxhunting or a veteran, why not carry a flask that has already earned its colors?
It measures 6” x 5 1/2” x 1 1/2”. *Special shipping rates apply due to insurance.
