Hip Flask Pewter is the fourth most precious metal in common usage, and sometimes the best way to display the beauty of the material is in a stylish, elegant and understated manner, as is beautifully demonstrated by this pewter hip flask.

The gorgeous gift will not rust or tarnish over time and really is the perfect example of beautiful design and craftsmanship coming together and is also supplied with a cream and black presentation box and funnel.
