Antique B. P. flasks, value??

Maybe somebody can give me an idea of what I have here??
The first one was made by Dixon and Sons of Sheffield, the top unescrew as oppose to the others that are retained by screws.



Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Best regards

Not having clicked on the link (or knowing much about them in general), I'd guess that the one on the right is most likely the oldest, most sought after & valuable of the bunch (the others are quite nice though). Most of the old flasks will surprise you with their value, some are prohibitively expensive.

Would like to see another pic or two (from different angles) of the mecahanics of the one on the right. *scratches head*

Greetings

That is a nice group of shotgun flasks. The one on the far right is a shot flask, for holding and giving measured charges of bird shot. The flask spouts should be marked in drams ( or the symbol which is sort of a "z" shaped squiggly thing ) if they are for a shotgun.
