2 minute read

 

This handsome pair of 54-Bore Adams 1855 Model Double Action Percussion Revolvers feature elegant engraved and gold-washed handles, and are of presentation quality. The barrels and frames of each revolver are abundantly engraved with scrollwork and retain much of their original gold-washed finish. Fitted with finely chequered light hardwood butts, the revolvers are housed in their original case, which is veneered in a handsome wood and mounted with elaborate gilt-brass plaques engraved with scrollwork. The stately box is lined with a lush velvet and gilt-stamped trade label that reads: "R. Adams, Manufacturer of Fine Arms of all Kinds. Wholesale & Retail. Patentee of the Revolver, adopted by Her Majesty's War Department & the Hon. E.I. Company."
