Dixons of Sheffield were market leaders with a very large factory by the turn of 1900. They produced a wide range of items but Hip Flasks were a strong line of their stock. They wholesaled to a number of well-known companies and also retailed their goods.

This flask, at 1 pint can be considered large compared to most on the market. Circa 1900.
