......  this flask?     
I picked it up at an antique gun store.  I know the owner of the store so he said take it home and find out what it might be worth.   I can't find any info on this one but did find a couple similar.  It has three compartments,  One main compartment for powder and two bottom compartments for balls and caps. 
Does anyone have one or know anything?   Trying to figure out what to pay for it.   It's an interesting little flask but seems to be an everyday use type.   Nothing fancy about it.    I'm going to examine it closer to look for marks but there is nothing obvious.





With an '51 Navy for size reference

mike, I have no idea who made it or what it is worth, but it is a very interesting flask, never seen one like it.

This seems highly similar.  Note the shape of the cap and ball doors. Hawksley - three way...  Ruby Lane antiques, SF.

It should have a makers name on the head.

$352.66 at todays exchange rate?  Spendy, but very interesting.
