Object Description

James Dixon’s Gentleman’s hip flask.
A very nice pocket silver-plated spirit hip flask made by James Dixon & Sons, Sheffield. The flask with a removable plated drinking cup. The lid is with a screw fitting and carries the mark of James Dixon & Sons. The flask is in good condition but missing the leather covering the top half.
On one side of the bottleneck can be found JD & S, whilst on the other side is a trumpet. The JD & S is the mark of James Dixon & Sons and the “Trumpet and Banner” mark identifies without doubt it is a Dixon’s product. The use of the trumpet is to prevent mistakes with the marks “JD & S” used by another Sheffield manufacturer, James Deakin & Sons. James Dixon & Sons was established (1806) in Sheffield by James Dixon in partnership with a Mr. Smith.
