  • Description: This is a nice metal flask by James Barlowe & Co. of Birmingham. The flask has an overall dark brown enamel finish that has worn to the underlying dark brown metal where it has chipped and scratched along the high edges and surfaces. A few very shallow dents are present as well. The adjustable top is graduated from 2 1/2 to 3 drams, and has a bright yellow patina streaked with blue-black where the metal has corroded at the surface. The decorative circular panels have identical embossed grouse vignettes on either side. This is a handsome black powder accessory and would make a fine decorative accent piece.
