This one is their famous rifle flask and it would be one of the last powder flasks made by the Company and whilst not up to the quality of their production in the 19th Century, it would make an interesting addition to a serious collection of powder flasks to represent the end of the line for one of the best and largest manufacturers of powder flasks that ever was. Item Code PF0194, Price SOLD (GBP) A James Dixon & Sons pistol size powder flask of the type cased with English percussion revolvers such as Tranter and Adams.

This is a Hawksley pattern and it is the first time I have seen this pattern in a small flask. Excellent condition with loads of lacquer remaining. Hawksley with a nozzle mounted with a side lever and adjustable upto 5 drams. I have always been interested in the colonial era of American history.I was excited to come across a unique form of cartographic artifact during this time: the powder horn map.The Geography and Map Division’s collection includes five horns of British origin dating from the French and Indian War era, three American-engraved horns from during the Revolutionary War, and one believed to have been made or carried by a Pennsylvania frontiersman sometime between 17.Several of the horns are inscribed with the names of their owners.Secured by a strap attached at each end, powder horns were worn across the shoulder, with the horn’s curve making it ideal for carrying close to the body, making the map readily accessible.
