Robert Burns hip flask for auction.

An 18th century hip flask which once belonged to Robert Burns is to go up for auction in Edinburgh.

The flask was recently bought from the Rutherford family when they sold Hunthill House, near Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders.
Burns spent time touring the area in the 1770s and during his visit, he often stayed in the house.

Bonhams expect the flask to make between £600 and £800 at their annual Scottish sale later this month.
I predict that it will make quite a bit more!
