I have this very unusual flask that I have been trying to get information about. I would appreciate any thoughts you all may have as to origin and value. Thanks!

    Another lovely old metal flask! I believe you saw a similar flask that was posted here about 2 weeks ago. It was much like one shown at Worthpoint that was described as Russian bronze. You might want to do a google search for images for those and see if you can find yours. The link to the one at worthpoint at:

    If you haven't already, go over it with a fine toothed comb and look for any markings, numbers, or letters that might help give more information. Good luck in your search!

    Looks like it might be a container for holy water or oil for anointing. Very beautiful!

    Good point, mizjane. Or perhaps sacramental wine for Eucharist?
