Lancaster Pewter Hip Flask - Royal Selangor
Size H10cm x Dia 8.5cm x 10cL
Traditional metalware mouldings, reminiscent of their architectural counterparts, embellish this handsome hip flask in brilliant finish pewter, based on a late 18th century example. A special gift for a special occasion - with plenty of room to personalise with engraving.
A Royal Selangor piece exudes an elegant sculptural presence derived from the softness and versatility of pewter which is fashioned in a variety of finishes – a traditional soft satin lustre, a dazzling brilliance that rivals silver or a subdued ‘antique’ finish.
Royal Selangor high quality cast pewter consists of 92% to 97% tin, with a small proportion of copper and antimony added to strengthen the alloy – the highest international standard for pewter. It is heavier and stronger than spun pewter. When struck gently, it produces a resonant sound.
Each piece is hallmarked with Royal Selangor’s maker’s mark, Sn920 for tin content, and the tiger’s head for country of manufacture.
- Wash in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry immediately with soft flannel.
- Polish as silver, with a good brand of silver polish and soft flannel.
