"Umbrella" Flasks/Shot Glass:
$440.00

Disguised as a man's umbrella! The cloth outer sleeve appears to cover an umbrella. Instead it covers a hollow wood shaft that contains three 4" glass vials for hiding booze! A metal tip and a solid wood taper at the base. The top 7 1/2" is a double threaded wood & brass handle. Unscrew the complete handle to reveal the three corked glass vials. The brass end cap unscrews to a secret shot glass! Overall condition: A small split in the wood handle where it joins the shaft. Both sets of threads are worn but work. The shot glass is a tight fit inside the cap. I would leave it in place. This is a super rare item that will keep you "wet" instead of dry! (Cat. #15441)

Early Patent Tower Handcuffs:
$210.00

Most examples are a later patent date or without a key. This pair has 90% of the original nickel & FIVE patent dates ranging from 1874 to 1882. Also marked "Towers Patent". The three links are the correct twisted style. Has a working key. These cuffs are the double locking type. The first stop allows the cuffs to be tightened past the original setting & a second turn of the key locks them at a particular setting so they can't be over tightened and injure the prisoner. These working keys are somewhat fragile so shouldn't be forced.
Directions for proper use is included. (Cat. #19053)
