French "Elbow Charger" Shell Design Powder Flask

French "Elbow Charger"
'Shell Design'
Powder Flask

This is called a "Shell" design because of the clamshell pattern on the lower half of the flask body, but could just as easily fall into other categories - such as foliage - because of the more lotus-shaped design displayed in the panels.
Common screw-off top, unusual elbow action shut-off with 3-setting adjustable charger (1 to 3 drams).
Copper body (~6-3/4" x ~4" x ~1-1/4") with two hanger ringlets; brass top.
