Hi in 2nd photo you can see glass (broken) flask. Now it is changed for chopping ice at picnics, or CIA, etc. The point is sharp as a razor. I got it at online auction and it was dirty and stuck, I soaked for 1 1/2 days with WD-40 until it came apart. Now I put olive oil between parts and polished wood! Now it is a nice cane! I may use it when I am older! Also the horse has a silly grin on his face! I do not know when made or what country, but probably US as prohibition was when people hid liquor! I almost did not post as this is kind of silly!

    Thanks! Picnics were popular back then and you need an ice pick always! I suppose it could be used for self defense, or if you are stuck in a minefield! haha Maybe when I am old I will say, "Try to rob me punk! go ahead, make m6y day" haha
