~ Anglo Indian Powder Flask Mounted With Mother Of Pearl ~
Here we have one of the most decadent powder flasks we’ve ever seen. This beautiful example is made in the traditional balloon shape, constructed of brass with dozens of individually placed tiles of mother of pearl in an outwardly radiating geometric pattern held in with small nails.
The flask has a brass chain and stopper.
This type of flask can occasionally be found as coming from British Colonial India, sometimes as tourist pieces or sometimes as very ostentatious hunting or sporting pieces.
Overall the flask is a very nice functional relic from the past and a great and unique addition to any blackpowder collection.
