Uberti-Prestige-60-Army-287-1.JPG

This is a 47% scale Colt 1860 Army "Prestige Edition" revolver made by Uberti in Italy.  These were the absolute top tier grade of the Uberti miniatures, and featured beautiful hand engraving and 24 karat gold inlays by Uberti's top master engravers.  These were also given very special attention as far as fit, function and finish, and are among the most graceful and beautiful of any miniatures I have ever had the pleasure to handle.   The frame, barrel, backstrap, and hammer are border outlined in 24 karat gold wire.  The frame also showing additional gold floral inlays, two on the right side, and one of the left side.  The barrel is not only beautifully engraved, but has extensive gold inlays including a gold horse head on the right side, a gold eagle on the left side with extensive gold floral scroll inlays.Fully functional, but non-firing, only because the nipples are not drilled all the way through.  6 3/8" long overall with a 3 3/4" rifled barrel.  The beautiful one piece ivory grips have a very nice grain and are starting to show some aged patina.  The steel parts are finished in a bright charcoal blue.   The trigger guard is brass, and shows a nice mellow aged patina.  Checkered hammer spur and loading latch lever.  Serial number 187 stamped into the bottom of the barrel, frame, triggerguard, and butstrasp.  87 stamped into the side of the cylinder.  The barrel has the proper roll marked Colt barrel address which has been inlaid in gold.  This is very seldom seen on these prestige miniatures!   The cylinder shows the proper roll engraved Ormsby naval engagement scene.   The left front of the frame is marked Colt's Patent.  The left rear of the triggerguard is marked .44 CAL.  Near mint condition except the blue or case coloring on the loading lever has faded for some reason to a steel gray.  Complete with a steel hinged top steel sheet metal casing with rotating latch.  The interior French fit in a burgundy velour.

This is a fully functional and shooting miniature revolver and shoots the antique long 2mm pinfire cartridges. 1 3/4" long overall with a 11/16" barrel. No engraving, nickel plated finish except for the hammer & trigger which look to have originally been fire blued.  There is a right side loading gate that hinges backward to load the cylinder.  Ring loop trigger with a very small spur of the bottom front.  Nice condition with 90% original nickel plated finish finish with some minor flaking of the nickel.  Some of the flaked spots showing some minor surface rust and pitting.  Will probably clean to look better. Beautiful near mint two piece mother of pearl grips with nickel escutcheons and a single screw entering from the left side.  The lanyard loop ring and chain are replacements. The revolver works perfectly in both single and double action with a really crisp and strong action.  First one of these I've had in a while.

Antique-2mm-RF-revolver-Nickel-1.JPG

 This is an antique 2mm rimfire double action six shot revolver, probably made in Germany or Belgium in the 1870's. This is a fully functional and shooting miniature revolver and shoots the antique thin rim 2mm rimfire cartridges. 1 15/16" long overall with a 13/16" barrel. Nicely engraved, nickel plated finish. Near mint condition with 95% original nickel plated finish finish with just some minor flaking of the nickel at the bottom of the front strap, the bottom of the grip strap around the lanyard ring, the hammer nose, and the front of the cylinder.  Will probably clean to look better. Two piece mother of pearl grips.  Complete with the original lanyard ring.  Also includes the original special tweezers type tool for loading the tiny 2mm rimfire cartridges into the cylinder, the original metal lift top box, and six rounds of the original antique thin rim 2mm rimfire ammunition.  The ammunition is around 130 years old, so it is not guaranteed to shoot, in fact, I highly recommend against it as these rounds are very corrosive, plus these rounds bring up to $35.00 each to cartridge and miniature collectors!  The box top has most of the original graphics scratched off for some reason, a real pity!  The sides and bottom of the box decorated in a black  and white checkerboard pattern.  The revolver works perfectly in both single and double action with a really crisp and strong action.  This is the first time I have ever offered one of these revolvers with the original loading tool and box!

Water-gun-1.JPG

I believe this is an antique miniature water pistol.  Cast zinc one piece construction that has the look of great age.  The grip area has a provision for what looks like a squeeze bulb with two annular rings with a groove in the middle.  It is of course hollow, with two very small holes in the muzzle.  Another of those items that I have never seen before and that deserves some further research.
