LDB4-half-Bowie-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale Searle's Bowie knife by an unknown maker.  9" long overall with a 5 11/16" blade.  The top rear of the blade marked "L.D.B. 4".  Beautiful checkered ebony handle with silver pins inlaid into each diamond, and an oval nickel silver escutcheon inlaid into both sides.  Nickel silver guard, and fittings.  There is a small dent in the back edge of the pommel where someone had dropped it, and some minor corrosion where the back of the guard meets the handle fitting.  Nickel silver and black leather scabbard with hanging ring.  A beautiful and well made knife obviously made by a master cutler.

Miniart-third-Win-94-12-inch-trapper-005-1.JPG

This is a 1/3 scale special order Winchester Model 1894 "Trapper" carbine with 14" barrel made by Miniart in Russia.  10 13/16" long overall with a 4 11/16" barrel of .10 caliber.  Blue finished steel parts, walnut stock and forearm, with some really nice figure in the stock.  The proper upper tang markings and barrel markings have been laser engraved.  The serial # 005 laser engraved on the bottom front of the receiver.  Checkered hammer spurs, typical carbine ladder rear sight, carbine buttplate.  This piece is absolutely 100% fully functional and includes three rounds of solid brass dummy ammunition that can be loaded into the magazine and will feed, chamber, extract, and eject.  The lever safety is also functional.  An outstanding value!  Complete with a very nice walnut hinged top casing.  The interior lined in a dark red velour, the bottom French fit.  Condition is 98 - 99% with just some very minor handling wear.  There was a barely perceptible hairline crack in the butt stock just behind the tang when I received this piece.  I sent it to Larry Smith who expertly made the repair, and is now stable and only visible under the close inspection.  Priced accordingly.

Larry-Smith-Parrot-Head-1-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale Hopkins & Allen "Parrot Head" derringer made by master miniature maker Larry Smith of Florida.  1 13/16" long overall with a 15/16" tip up barrel of .116 caliber.  Fire blue finish except for the trigger which looks to be case hardened.  Beautiful two piece mother of pearl grips with yellow brass escutcheons and the screw entering from the left side.  The serial number "1" stamped into the left rear of the barrel and the left front of the frame.  No other markings.  Complete with the original unmarked Larry Smith hinged top walnut casing with cloth hinge and brass push button latch release.  The interior French fit in a bright red velour.  Accessories include 5 rounds of the original Larry Smith custom made externally primed blank center fire ammunition to fit this piece in the original Larry Smith miniature cartridge box with slide out tray.  As far as I can tell, these rounds are unique to this miniature.  I talked with Larry about this piece, and he told me it is very probably the very first "Parrot Head" he made.

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.

Heasman-Sten-17-1.JPG

This is a 1/3 scale British Sten Mk III made by Gordon Heasman in England.  9 3/4" long overall with a 2/8" barrel of .116 caliber.  Black painted finish except for the bolt & extractor which are finished in the white, and the magazines and bolt handle which are blued.  Fully functional, but non-firing.  Marked on the bottom of the triggerguard GH17, this is one of the first batch he made, and as such, has the extractor and ejector that are always missing from the later batches.  Complete with the original Heasman pine crate, the top heat or burned stenciled "STEN MK III, then an upward pointing arrow, in two lines.  The crate measures 11" X 4 3/8" X 2 5/8".  Very unusual is this is the first of these I have ever seen with two magazines.  The painted black finish shows about 98% original shiny black paint, the bolt has turned a nice gray patina.  The magazines show a little wear, and some discoloration form fingerprints.  The crate in near mint condition, showing just some very minor discoloration from age.
