And I have 15 more to hang up. I got 4 a while back and then recently 2 lots of a total of 11. That should about fill the empty space along the ceiling!

A couple of us have "The Powder Flask Book" by Riling and there are a BUNCH of flasks pictured. There are many variations on a theme, and several themes as well. Another place to look is here:

Thanks! I also have a few flasks that need some TLC....missing cut-off levers, springs, head screws, spouts, etc.  I don't use the original flasks, I have repros for actual loading.
