    Description

    Rare Ring Gun, "Le Femme Fatale," Often Referred to as a "Prostitute's Gun." This well-made 19th century ring gun was said to be a favorite with ladies of the night in case they encountered an unruly client. Its small size and decoration mark it clearly as a woman's accessory. In its original "Le Femme Fatale" velvet-lined case, with six tiny 2mm cartridges (the screwdriver is missing). Great condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
