Sale IN206 Lot 26

Three Pieces of Silver and Silverplate Barware

first half 20th century, including:
a Wightman & Hough, Providence, Rhode Island, silverplate "Kap-Kup" flask, with screw cap and pull-out shot cup, with engine engraving, monogrammed "HSA", l. 6-1/2". w. 4-1/4";
a silverplate lemon juicer, dia. 4"; and
a Frank W. Smith, Gardner, Massachusetts, sterling silver waiter, dia. 8-1/4".

Notes: The "Kap-Kup" flask, with a solid shot-cup fitted within it, was patented in 1921 by New York Jeweler Charles Newton Coryell (1881-1946). The patent was produced by Wightman & Hough by 1923, shown by a model, nearly identical to that in the present lot, advertised in the July 25, 1923 issue of The Jewelers' Circular, p. 104. The repeal of prohibition was still ten years away.

Estimate $125-250

**In overall good used condition. The flask has a tiny 3/16" dent on the reverse and a small scuff on one corner. Not tested for water fastness. The juicer is slightly out of round. Scattered nicks, scuffs and dings on the waiter.
