The corner of the book twists off to reveal the secret flask. The book is covered in leather like a real book and even has marbled pages!
Inside the flask is marked J. 78 Sheffield Made in England 90 8 ozs" and on the cap is stamped "78. The overall condition of the book flask is in very good condition but there are a few flaws that I have found. The top paper of the "marbled paper", is very delicate and slightly loose and chipping / missing some pieces of the paper Please see photo's! The top corner is missing two pieces of leather due to wear of use, and the one corner is slightly bent.The binding of the flask is in very good condition and the leather overall is very good, but slightly loose on one side due to it drying.
