Unusual 19th Century Globular Flask

This delightfully tactile object is somewhat of a mystery. I am unsure whether it is for powder or liquids. It has a brass, screw lid which seals tightly. The flask itself is made out of a base metal (which has some slight rubbing/surface scratching from use). The handle works on a swing hinge, which is in tight condition.

An unusual object which is very tactile. It is of some considerable age - I would imagine late 19th Century

Thank you for taking the time to read my terms

Please only bid if you are aware of the postage and packing costs. I try to keep postage and packaging charges to a minimum. I describe all items honestly and to the best of my ability, with as much detail as I think will be helpful. I would not profess to be an expert on all items that I offer for sale, so the descriptions should only be used as a guide. I do not deliberately attempt to cover up any blemishes, although I am not infallible so I can not rule out the possibility of oversight. Let me know if you are unhappy with the quality and condition of an item as any problems can no doubt be worked out amicably.

As I am sure that those ebayers who deal with me on a regular basis will agree, I am a very reasonable and accommodating individual. With those bidders who behave decently, I am willing to discuss any problems regarding descriptions, postage or packaging. Should you have any problems with an item that I am selling, I am confident that we shall be able to negotiate a mutually agreeable outcome. Please do not leave negative or neutral feedback before speaking to me as it is undoubtedly unnecessary .


All postage options quoted cover postage and packaging. I set P and P charging at a minimum and am not open to discussion with regard to the standard P and P charges offered on items. Should bidders wish to ask for alternative postal options then clearly charges will change accordingly.

UK customers – Royal Mail First Class is standard. Those winning bidders who require a different service - email me on receipt of invoice to let me know your preferences. I will then let you know the change in associated costs. Unless the item is particularly heavy, please do not ask for Second Class service as I tend to send parcels in bulk and therefore wish to avoid any administrative complications

For overseas delivery – Royal Mail Airmail

Customers are responsible for all import and local taxes and all parcels are labelled accordingly with a description of contents for overseas shipping. Signed for can be provided, but costs seem to be extortionate.

I pack all my items carefully andI will always provide proof of posting.


I prefer payment within a week of the end of the auction. I am not an unreasonable man, so if bidders have particular problems in making payment on time I will be willing to accept limited delays (provided that some sort of explanation is offered in the mean time)

UK customers – I accept Paypal, postal orders and personal cheques in GBP

Overseas customers – I accept Paypal only

Bidders outside the UK please note – If overseas postage is not quoted in the details, please email me before bidding so that I can offer postage options that best suit your requirements. Thank you.

Multiple purchases are combined for shipment where weight allows.

I will post items within a week of the receipt of payment. Generally I tend to get things sent off within 2-3 days of payment. In the event of holidays and ‘crises’ I shall post notices on my item descriptions.

Good luck and please take a look at my page antiques
