Large Retro Penguin Flask

R390.00

I could not believe my eyes when I spotted this Elweco penguin flask the other day! I sold one a few months ago, and thought I would never see another one, when along came this chap! I literally had to hold myself back from jumping up and down!

He’s in pretty much the same condition as the first penguin thermos that we sold, with a bit of wear to the paintwork where the handle knocks the penguin’s tum, as well as a few minor scratches here and there – fortunately nothing too serious. And of course he has the same (slightly evil!) eyes that switch from a mustardy yellow to red as you open and close the flask – so clever! When I bought him he had an old advertising sticker of his stomach that read ‘Penguin is Pools’, so presumably this was given by Penguin Pools to their customers, perhaps when they had a pool built by them? Wouldn’t that be a cool gift to receive – I think I’d almost be more exited by the flask than by the swimming pool – but I think that might just be me!

Dimensions: 42cm tall x 18cm in diameter (at its widest)
