Antique 1850's Dutch Hand Engraved 850 - 900S Silver Flask Repro of 1600's Piece. Presented is very interesting and distinctive 850-900 purity silver flask made some time in the mid 19th century in (Holland) the Netherlands.

This is a reproduction of a much earlier piece, first produced in the 17th century. The engraved silver bottle hosts a myriad of decorative features, with an overall middle or south eastern Asian form.

The double chains attached to the tower-shaped cap connect to green man faces, cast in high relief and applied to the sides of the flask. The body of the flask is covered in hand-engravings. One engraved face features a scene of a well-dressed Dutch lord standing by a lady, with a dog at their feet.

A rooster is seen among the foliate scrolls and blossoms above. The opposite face shows a crest topped by a royal crown and supported by two griffins. The field is in quadrants and includes a diagonal sash. The fields are charged in quadrants with a rampant eagle, a rampant lion and an inescutcheon containing three dogwood blossoms.

A phoenix bird rising is nestled within the foliage above the crest. The silver is 850- 900 purity silver. The condition of the flask is excellent.

The only flaw is the positioning of the very tip of the cover, which wobbles a bit and doesn't always stand straight, and a rock to the pedestal which is slightly bowed by about 1 millimeter. Dimensions: 7 inches tall by 4 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches deep Weight: 12 oz (340 grams) tm. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution. This item is in the category "Antiques\Silver\Non-U.
