Cylinder with fancy relief etched with floral bouquets and a “Stand of Arms”. Frame gold plated and scroll engraved in Nimschke”s style. Silver plated barrel acid etched in floral and vine leaf relief scroll all the way to the muzzle. Very good overall with minor amounts of gold on the frame and traces of silver on the barrel.

Action in working order but the firing pin tip is missing but is not noticeable and should be easy to replace. Very scarce with this deluxe engraving. Must have been intended for presentation.
