19th Century Gun Size G & J.W. Hawksley Sheffield Black Powder Flask With Fine Wicker Basket Weave Covering & Graduated, Sprung Nozzle Charger. Sn 18599 - 18599

The Sheffield based company Geo & JW Hawksley are recorded at 35 Smithfield 1845 and various addresses on Carver Street Sheffield from 1854 through to the 1940’s when the Company was bought by James Dixon & Sons (see page 114 of Riling’s book The Powder Flask). Decoration of powder flasks varied dramatically with hunting, game animals, foliate, village, military and marine scenes. They were also made of a wide variety of materials and had various coverings. A Flask similar to ours with fine wicker basket weave covering is illustrated from a period James Dixon & Sons Sheffield on page 213 panel 10 of The powder flask book by Riling. This gun size, black powder flask by C &JW Hawksley is made of brass with wicker basket weave covering all clean and intact. The screw top charger has measurement adjustment ‘2 ½, 2 ¾, 3’ drams and spring lever which is fully functioning with a strong action. The charger is crisply marked ‘G & J.W. Hawksley Sheffield’. The flask is 8 ½” length and 3 ½” diameter at its widest. There are no signs of damage or repair. The price for this attractive flask includes UK delivery. Sn 18599
