A Colt 1849 “Pocket Model” powder flask. It is all original, and is embossed, on both sides, with an eagle holding a shield and arrows within its talons. Thirteen stars are above the eagle’s head and wings. “E. Pluribus Unum” is printed within a banner, at the lower edged, just below a pair of crossed pistols. The body of the flask is brass with a brass charger. This was probably produced during the American Civil War period.
Overall Length with Spout: 4.50″
Condition: A very dark age patina with no cleaning or polishing evident with one speck of white paint that would probably come right off, but may leave a bright spot when removed, so have left it, as found – One large dent on one side of the flask body, with a few much smaller dents on both sides – Charger operates as it should, with a touch of rust on the iron spring and screws
