The bottom is marked, from the left hand side to the right -
Left Hand top: an 11 point star with a block D in the center
Left hand bottom: Made in England
Center Top: The Trumpet & banner of James Dixon & Sons
Center, center line: James Dixon & Sons
Center bottom: Sheffield
Right hand: 49 |two blank spaces| 10OZS
The first question is the meaning of the 11 Point Star Mark - does this denote pewter (or "Brittania metal")?
What about the 49?
The flask dimensions are 6.5 inches long X 5 inches wide X 1 inchg thick. The lid is a screw on style with cork seal.
I have found several similar flasks from this maker, but this one has no sterling of plate hall marks that I can identify, and I'm stumped. [10OZS is the capacity.]
I'll see about posting photos tomorrow.
When someone is drowning, do you describe the water? Just drink out of the thing.
