Well it looks like a sterling silver hip flask and probably made in India as a copy of the much better English examples that they will have seen there. belonging to the British.
Sterling silver is 92.5% pure and in this country will have been hall marked.
The value will be little more than the value of the silver and to work that out, weigh the flask in grammes.
Divide that weight by 31 to find the weight in Troy ounces (that is how silver and gold are valued). Allow about 50p per gramme in order to get the value of the silver. The flask may be worth a little more than that. Greg
