Leather Wrapped Glass Flasks

Leather Wrapped Glass Flasks

We worked with Kentucky-based leather makers Clayton & Crume to design a custom Great Republic flask that will match the quality of the spirits it will carry. Distilleries have been bottling spirits in glass for decades – it’s the only way to preserve the integrity of the spirit and avoid the tarnished taste that comes from cheap metal flasks. The result is this beautiful flask, made of glass and wrapped in high quality, full grain saddle leather. This is the perfect way to sip your favorite spirits fireside amongst friends or to toast an epic day.

Searching the braderies and antique shops throughout Europe, the founders of Intellectual Property, Mary and Hallie, specialize in finding unique antique medals and  transforming them into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.

Antique Brass Three-Draw Telescope, 19th Century
This antique three-draw telescope dates to the 19th century. Solidly crafted with brass draws and a brass barrel wrapped in leather, this antique telescope is a beautiful example of French optics. The optics are clear and the telescope still functions, a testament to its design and construction.
Buffalo Nickel Cufflinks

These cufflinks are crafted from actual buffalo nickel coins. Buffalo nickel coins were struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. These antique coins have been intricately hand-cut with a jeweler's saw. Each pair has sterling silver cufflink findings soldered onto the buffalo nickel. The backings are strong, hinged findings that will not pull through your cuffs. They are the perfect unique gift for a stylish man to wear on his french cuff shirts. 

Eagle Leather Valet

This handmade Eagle Leather Valet is a distinguished way to accessorize around the home, the office, or on the go. Functioning as an elegant catch-all tray, the Eagle Leather Valet is the perfect resting place for everything in the daily after-work pocket purge. Unsnap the corners for a lay-flat travel accessory, and never leave your keys in a hotel room again. Functional and sleek, this is the perfect solution to a man's lost keys or wallet!
