Default PYE Flask

I picked this up at our local antiques emporium last week. As I saw it on the shelf, I thought it was a oversized can of switch cleaner, but it's an Aladdin Flask with the glass insides still intact.

"A Golden gift from PYE - Presented Olympics Year 1976"

A quick look on the internet doesn't show any significant 50th (Golden) anniversary for the Company that year. Could the Golden reference be something to do with Pye's Golden Guinea record label?

A gift maybe for staff, retailers or customers? Which branch of Pye?

Has anyone else here seen one or still got one?

Regards,

SR

Possibly....

If I was the marketing department, I would have just bought plain ones and said 'A Gift from Pye'. I imagine the gold finish cost a little more?

I do like the fact the Pye logo seems to be a good colour match for the cup and stopper.
