 An exquisite little pistol by  E. W.

Bailey of Birmingham

Click thumbnail to enlarge
This lovely little brass framed pocket pistol by E W Bailey of Birmingham is one of my favourites. It is beautifully engraved all over and has a deeply chiselled German Silver cap-trap. When this pistol arrived from the US it still had two ancient percussion caps in the cap-trap which, I suspect, have been there for the last couple of hundred years. It carries Birmingham proof marks.
