Found this today. It is a hand-tooled flask with a circle slug plate embossing that reads: Edward Rafter Importer New York City.
Can't find any information about Mr. Rafter or his imports buisness, perhaps it was just a short lived enterprise.
The Gallagher Stores were a small chain of grocery stores that operated for a short time in New York City from 1902 until their closure in 1906. This is one of their tooled-lip, strap-sided, slug plate-embossed alcohol flasks.
