1877 Silver Mounted Saddle Flask by George Unite (Flask167)

This conical flask has a silver bayonet or captured cap which is hallmarked Birmingham 1877.
It is also stamped "GU" (George Unite).
There is a small dent in the top of the cap and it is engraved "C.B.C."

The dark mahogany coloured case has a good patina.
The girth strap has been extended - the stitching is very fine, so this was probably done in the late 19th / early 20th century.
It is attached so that the flask will sit on the near-side of the saddle.
The case closes with a billet fastening and has a replacement top strap which attaches the flask to the D ring of the saddle.
It is lined in chamois or doeskin.
The top of the case is embossed with the initials "J.A.B."

Length (of case): 10½" (27cm)
