Airtight, screw-top pewter flask with unique hand-hammered, high-polish finish. Holds 3 oz. of liquid. Slim design for compact storage and simple pocket carry. Handmade in Sheffield, England, since 1949. (
The slim, streamlined profile of this flask—less than one inch thick—allows for discrete and compact storage in a sport coat or pants pocket. When the flask is in hand, however, discretion goes out the window with its unique, hand-hammered and brightly polished surface.
Handmade from English pewter, which meet the requirements set out by the European Committee for Standardization, this flask is 92% tin, a metal that is an essential trace mineral. The malleability of tin requires the production of pewter to include other metals, such as bismuth, antimony or copper, though, in order to be properly called pewter, tin values must reach at least 85%.
Fill the flask using a funnel or a steady hand. Hand wash with soap and hot water, then dry with a soft cloth. Do not put it in dishwasher.
Pewter will keep its shine with minimal maintenance. It doesn't tarnish like silver, but if it does start to dull, rub with a bit of standard metal polish using line strokes (not circular).
Arthur Richard Wentworth founded his pewter company in 1949 in the traditional steel-producing city of Sheffield, England. A metal alloy, pewter has been around since the Bronze Age and preceded glass, porcelain and plastic as the household material of choice. While fewer dinner plates are made of pewter now, it is still the classic material of flasks.
This hammered flask contains a minimum of 92% tin. Tin doesn't oxidize in air easily (it is often used as an anti-corrosive coating for other metals), and is favored for food and drink because of its low toxicity. Due to the malleability of tin, the remaining 8% of pewter is a mix of hardening metals, mostly copper and antimony.
