Oh my!!! What a grand colletion of rare horn/flasks!!! These are just the best. Thank you for letting us have a look at what must have been a long and laborious pursuit of top shelf pieces.

These flasks are equipped with several different types of heads, by example the Boche a Paris type, the Dixon-patent type, the type of the Hick and Weatherwax Patent, heads with cross spring charger .....  A fascinating collection!

I am wondering, if these flask heads have been industrially made and then been used by craftsmen for their shop-made flasks?

I guess, that the flasks with a knee action charger (like Riling 1390 and 1394) are older than the other flasks? Am I right with this thinking? I have never seen a flask with a knee action charger for an affordable price.

I would say that the flasks has you put it with a knee  type spout are about the same period and industrial made   some throw a one standard charge but some also  have a adjustable measure on the spout
