Discovered and photographed from the air in December 1940 by members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS). It was charted in 1947 by a joint party consisting of members of the Ronne Antarctic Research Expedition (RARE) and Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). So named by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) because the two peaks are suggestive of a flagon tilted on its side when viewed from north or south.
