Hob Nob Silver Flask with Bag from Williamsburg. To “hob nob” suggests moving in good company. The phrase was first recorded in 1763, when it meant to drink together or toast one another. It’s an appropriate message for this silverplated flask. Presented in a handsome black flannel storage bag, this engravable flask is the perfect gift for groomsman, Father’s Day, birthdays and more. H. 6 1/8". Made by Reed & Barton Silver for the Williamsburg Collection.
