The Love Skull pattern came about when designer Gordon W Robertson visited Capela dos Ossos or Chapel of Bones, an unusual chapel in Faro, Portugal made entirely from the bones of monks that were buried there. Gordon thought it would be well spooky, but apparently it was oddly serene and made a lasting impression. He’s been fascinated by momento moris, which are symbols of mortality in art, ever since. Hence, the skull motif is a reminder of our short time in this life and the heart symbolises love – if we're lucky enough. Customers love the playful nature of the Love Skull pattern with its cartoon skulls and hearts – it’s not too serious despite the potentially dark subject matter.
Fill the flask using a funnel or a steady hand. Hand wash with soap and hot water and dry with a soft cloth. Don't put it in the dishwasher. Pewter will keep its shine with minimal maintenance. It doesn't tarnish like silver, but if it does start to dull, rub it with a bit of standard metal polish using straight line strokes (not circular).
A metal alloy, pewter has been around since the bronze age and preceded glass, porcelain and plastic as the household material of choice. While fewer dinner plates are made of pewter now, it is still the classic material of flasks. These flasks contain a minimum of 92% tin. Tin doesn't oxidize in air easily (it is often used as an anti-corrosive coating for other metals), and is favored for food and drink because of it's low toxicity. Because of tin's malleability, the remaining 8% of pewter is a mix of hardening metals, mostly copper and antimony. (Lead was phased out of pewter many decades ago.)
Pocket-sized 4- or 6-ounce flask. Love Skull design, doesn't taint the sweet taste of booze. Handmade in Sheffield, England.
All products that contain pewter are lead free.
Truthfully, a flask isn’t about discretion. If you really need to disguise your drinking, fill up a can of Pepsi with rum (and don’t forget your fake ID at home). A flask is subtle, but it’s an assertion nonetheless that there’s nothing salacious or vulgar about a few sips of drink. Take out a flask and everyone knows what’s in there, but it also says that you take alcohol seriously, as something meant to be enjoyed and passed around. These flasks are made in the traditional steel-producing city of Sheffield, England. Arthur Richard Wentworth, a pewtersmith, founded the company in 1949. Because pewter is part of Sheffield’s steel-making heritage, these flasks are stamped with seals of authenticity and association: the coat of arms of Sheffield, minimum tin content (92%), the Pewter Craftsmen trade guild stamp, and Wentworth’s initials. The Wentworth flask is compact enough to fit in a coat pocket or a handbag, but the curved shape makes it nicely suited for the breast pocket of a sport coat. Looks especially dapper in the hands of a groomsman. The flask comes in two sizes: 4 or 6 ounces.
