Large sterling silver flask. Made by Tiffany & Co. in New York. Arched top with hinged and cork-lined cap. Acid-etched ornament. At bottom oak branches and fleurs de lys with reeded curvilinear border.

On front a pair of nude wrestlers heave and grapple. A fine exhibition of male brawn, probably inspired by Classical sculpture, such as the celebrated Roman marble group on view at the Uffizi in Florence. On back a scrolled, interlaced, and flower-strewn monogram.

Fully marked including pattern no. 10035 (first produced in 1888), director’s letter M (1873-91), and volume (7 1/2 gills or 30 fluid ounces). Fine condition with strong definition.

Dimensions: H 8 1/2 x W 5 1/4 x D 1 3/4 in. Weight: 18 troy ounces. #BT048
