A very attractive nickel plated Belgian pinfire with signature folding trigger and high front sight, with well cut floral engraving in approximate 50% coverage, comprising floral scroll and vignettes on frame, vignettes on cylinder, and scroll on approximately 1/3rd of barrel. Nicely grained ivory grips, retained by a single screw through an escutcheon engraved en suite. Belgian ELG proof visible on rear of cylinder and "ACIER FONDU" on lower left barrel flat. In a basketweave pattern wrapped case, French fitted for the gun and 2 compartments to hold accessories, vacant. CONDITION: Excellent, showing only the lightest evidence of freckling to nickel in recessed corners (most offensive some lifting on trigger), with some handling marks and clouding normal to nickel. Mechanically fine, bore is very good with strong rifling and a few areas of pitting about halfway down barrel. Case is very good, lining with with impressions from revolver, and handling marks throughout. Some peeling to exterior, mostly to bottom, lock appears replaced. Formerly part of the Allan Klein collection.
