A small silver spirit Flask by James Dixon and Sons.
The glass flask has very dark green leather to the top and a removable cup protecting the bottom half. The screw cap is completely removable, which you might expect for its earlier date. Dixons of Sheffield were prolific flask makers. The cap has a Sheffield hallmark for 1886 whilst the removable cup is dated 1887. As they would have been made separately and then paired this is perhaps not surprising. Dated 1887.
