Help needed: hip flask hallmark identification (British)

Hi there,
I am trying to identify the date of production and the maker of this hip flask. I am new to silverware, but some online research suggests it is sterling silver with a Sheffield hallmark, and the date letter is an ‘h’ (possibly 1900?)? Any idea of it’s value would also be helpful.
Thank you in advance.

Sheffield 1900 is completely correct. FCA&Co is Frederick C Asman & Co, a Sheffield company.

Value depends on several different things. I suggest that you have a look a Ebay’s “Sold” listings. You should find something comparable which will give you an indication of what people are prepared to pay.


Hi Phil,
Thank you very much for the information! I’m so glad you could confirm the date and identify the maker for me.
