This lovely pair of flasks have their original leather cases, well used but intact. The cup lids are nickel plated and lined in cream bakelite. The stoppers are both present but the rubber seal on one is missing and the other has hardened over time, making these more decorative than functional. Also, there is a slight dent to one of the cup lids which can be seen in the photos. On the top of each lid is engraved AHS AUTO THERM. Price is for the pair.

A classic American 1930s era suitcase, made by Oshkosh Trunks Inc. of Wisconsin. Fibreboard with leather edging and handle and brass locks. The interior is a silk style fabric, the elastic in the pockets unusually still has plenty of spring in it. The word 'PICTURES' can be seen faintly on the lower right section of the top of the case, menaing it has been involved in a house move at some point in its life. This doesn't detract from the overall look but is reflected in the price.
