How pretty are these vintage flasks? So much prettier than the thermoses you can buy today! I love the blue and gold aluminium, and the pale bluey-green lid on the gold thermos that of course doubles as a cup. Given their age – I’d guess that that they date to sometime in the 1950s/’60s – it’s not surprising that there are some signs of wear & tear, although on the whole I think that they’re pretty clean. The most noticeable wear is to the stoppers, but luckily you don’t see the wear until you remove the lids.

A fun, but functional pair of flasks just perfect for a summer picnic!
