Hello I was given 2 flasks and i'm trying to find some background on them. I have figured out that they are from Birmingham but not sure how old they are or their value. They were originally leather wrapped glass and silver but the leather was ruined in a damp cellar and the silver is quite tarnished.

Both your flasks were made by an excellent American company.
The Gorham Corporation, Providence, Rhode Island.
