Description

Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 1862. A scarce American Sharps style engraved 4 barrel blued derringer in obsolete .30 r/f calibre. Slightly larger than a gentleman’s pocket watch, these palm-sized Pepperbox derringers were a favorite with gamblers and others who felt they needed protection, but may wish to keep their “ace in the hole” secreted out of sight. This 19th-century gambling photograph shows two “gents” engaging in a game of cards with a Sharps derringer prominently displayed in the centre of the table, no doubt to remind these “sports” that this was an honest game. Decorative engraving to both sides of the nickel plated brass frame. The four barrels retaining 70% of it's original blued finish. Finely chequered grips. Action in good working order. Manufactured circa 1859-1870. Overall length 5.5 inches. In good condition and retaining retaining some of it's original blued finish. A fine example of a four barrelled Derringer. Ref 1862.
