Here we have what I believe to be a zinc powder flask. I also believe it to be from Germany but I'm not certain as no expert. It has very nice embossed detail to both sides and a leather carrying strap. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who could shed any light on country of origin and an idea of date of manufacture. Many thanks, Alex

    Hi Alex
    I've got the exact same "flask" and would like to know its history.
    This is an old post and I cannot see the reply on your original post.
    Please let me know if you have any information on this.
    Many thanks
