Scarce Date! 1858 Dated United States "Peace" Flask by Batty of Springfield
Click on an image to enlarge
What a beautiful U.S. patriotic powder flask. This is one of my favorite designs of the military powder flask. On the sides it has the "US" on the shield with the draped flags behind along with the trumpet, cannon swords and muskets. Above that it has the shaking hands design which has always been associated as a sign of "Peace". That is where the flask gets its name of the peace flask. Above the hands it has the beautiful large eagle. On the side of the flask it has both of the strap rings. The original spout is intact but the spring is still functional. It also has the maker's mark of "BATTY" and the production date of "1858" stamped on the top near the spout. This is the first one of these that we have had that was dated 1858 in our 30 years in the business. It also has the inspector initials of "A.D.K." for A.D. King as well as the Springfield, Massachusetts production location. This one has a very pleasing look and will make a superb addition to your collection.
