Subject:Re: Usual antique flask - Japan? Europe?
Posted By: David Sat, Jan 13, 2018
Nobody has said anything yet so I'll try and help a little. It doesn't look at all European. The holes at the top were I assume for some sort of strap which show no signs of wear. I.E. Unused. I can't tell the material. Base looks copper. Have you looked to see if it held any liquid? Does it smell of anything inside? Does it have a cork or similar stopper? Is the lid threaded? Since you have had it decades and there are no signs of wear to what I assume is enamel, has it only been for decoration? Sorry I can't help more. D
