These vintage thermos flasks come in a lovely range of colours and shapes. I have shown the flasks that I presently have in stock, although they are changing all the time. They generally date from the 40's and 50's and are practical as well as stylish. They can be used in the house, garden or on picnics but I would explain that the stoppers are not as secure as modern flasks and so do not go turning them upside down!

The dark brown flask in the third photo is made of bakelite whilst the others are made from another early plastic, urea formaldehyde resin, which gave a wider range of colours. The red and white flask is made of a softer more flexible material. The flasks are approximately 25cms high although as you can see from the photos there is a larger green flask and the red jug type flask is shorter but still has about the same capacity.

All have been used but are still in good condition, although the green flask in photo 3 has a hairline crack to the spout

Price 24.00 each except green flask in photo 3 18.00.

Postage & packing for UK 5.00.
