Antique-DT-Gold-grip-1391-1.JPG

This is an antique miniature percussion single shot pistol, probably made in Belgium in the 1850's to 1870's.  Typical screw off barrel and hidden folding trigger.  1.630" long overall with a .556" barrel.  The barrel is round and modestly engraved with a bore diameter of about .102 caliber.  Beautiful engraved gold one piece grip.   The frame, trigger, and the top tang are nicely scroll engraved.  Checkered hammer spur.  The hammer has both half and full cock, and the mechanism works correctly.  The muzzle of the bore of the barrel is cut in an eight point star pattern.  This is where the barrel wrench would engage the barrel for removal when stuck.  These are extremely rare!
