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.

Depending on the finish, pewter can be cleaned using two major methods:

   - 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.
