Belgian cased engraved double action folding trigger pin-fire revolver




Belgian cased engraved double action folding trigger
This revolver has no visible maker's inscription but is clearly built based on Lefauchaux's folding trigger revolver. # 2890 is marked on the left side of the revolver. The mandatory ELG with additional "crown/G" stamp is on the cylinder. There is attractive floral and scroll engraving on a punch dot background throughout. The front of the cylinder has a golden band. It has triangular blade front and hammer notch rear sights and is fitted with a pair of smooth ivory colored celluloid grips. It comes in a black with brass studs and unmarked initial plate, blue velvet fitted interior with two compartments containing the key.  Caliber 7mm pin fire, 3 round barrel.
The cylinder retains 75% of the original blue finish and 90% of the gold while the remaining surfaces have a French gray tone with minor residue. The grips are very fine with smooth surfaces and a few slight spots of discoloration. Unlike a lot of folding trigger revolvers this is mechanically excellent. The case is also fine with some minor storage wear and a few slight stains on the interior.
Overall, a very attractive set.     $2,500.
