Showcasing the craftsmanship of two historic English brands, The British Belt Company and English Pewter Company, this handsome flask in a leather sleeve lets you carry your beverage of choice in style. The British Belt Co. has been making leather goods since 1946, and today its collection includes everything from belts and bags to notebook covers and travel accessories. Its water-repellent oiled leather—available in six colors—fits neatly around the 4-ounce flask from English Pewter Company. Based in the world-famous manufacturing city of Sheffield, this family-owned company has specialized in handmade pewter giftware since 1977.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of sleeve color: black, brown, gray, mint, pink, or tan.
Pewter is well suited for everyday use and will retain its wonderful finish with minimum care. Wash your flask by hand in hot, soapy water. Never wash it in a dishwasher, as the chemical in the detergent will react with the pewter and ruin the finish. Hand dry using a straight up-and-down motion, rather than circles, and note that using a hard cloth may cause scratches on the soft metal. Hip flasks aren’t suitable for carbonated mixtures, and alcohol shouldn’t be left inside for more than 24 hours. If your flask becomes heavily marked, use a metal polish prior to washing. When dealing with antique pewter items that have become very dark, experts strongly recommend against repolishing, as this may reduce the value.
