    Ornate, Early 1800’s Large C & J.W. Hawksley Sheffield Embossed Shell & Bush Design Copper Black Powder Flask With Graduated, Sprung Brass Nozzle Charger. Sn 17573 - 17573

    Decoration of 19th century powder flasks varied dramatically with hunting, game animals, foliate, village, military and marine scenes. This quality flask falls into the category of Shell & Bush décor featuring deep embossed shell with radiating bush combination (see page 286 of The powder flask book by Riling & page 288 plate 331 of the same book where a flask with similar design to ours is illustrated). 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). This is an excellent, copper, gun size, black powder flask by C &JW Hawksley. It is deeply embossed with shell and bush decoration. The screw top brass charger has measurement adjustment ‘2 ¼ , 2 ½, 2 ¾, 3’ grains and spring lever which is fully functioning with a strong action. The charger is crisply marked ‘C & J.W. Hawksley Sheffield’. The flask is 8 ¼” 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 17573
