Hip Flask

Silver Engraved Hip Flask

Antique Hip Flasks, were made of glass and metals (particularly silver), are now popular with collector's. A hip flask is a thin flask for holding liquor. Its size and shape make them easily fit into a mans hip pocket and generally liquid is drunk directly from the flask.

Many whiskey flask has relief's of famous or important people such as George Washington, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and Benjamin Franklin and are called Historical Whiskey Flasks. Flask bearing the embossed pictures of horse drawn trains reflect the pride Americans took in their fast developing transportation system in the early 1800s. Sailing ships and other symbols of American prosperity are found on other historical flask. Politicians embossed their bust on the side of whiskey flask. These flask were not just advertising, they were sometimes distributed among would be voters at election time in the hope that they would make them vote the right way. Other bottles were decorated with patriotic symbols such as the American eagle. The rarest is the "Jared Spencer Bottle", an amber bottle embossed with a medallion bearing the likeness of the maker himself, Jared Spencer.

Color is very important for flasks, with aqua's being the most common and cobalt blue the rarest. Some whiskey flask had handles to facilitate drinking straight from the bottle, a widespread custom in the 1800s. Most of these early whiskey flask had the distillers name embossed on the glass, some did not. Saloons sometimes gave away samples in souvenir bottles with interesting shapes such as pigs and pistols that only held a few ounces of liquor. Such oddly shaped bottles are called figural. Larger size figural bottles held 6 or more ounces.
