It has an integral valve and mechanical mechanism made of horn and fitted to the body by a figured walnut housing. The body is comprised of a horn band sandwiched between figured walnut panels which are adorned with European stag rosette rounds, scrimshawed with a fleeing boar on the obverse and a oak wealth on the reverse. The flask hangs on a braided leather strap and is attached by turned and carved antler rings by a brass oak leaf, rat-tail hangers. The cord joins beneath the flask with a leather Spanish knot ending in turned horn and boar hair tassels.
