    Exquisite Quality, Engraved, Gold Inlaid French 6mm Double Action Revolver, #4489, Circa 1890. Marked on the top of the frame "Manufacture Francaise/ D'Armes Et Cycles Saint Etienne" with "Calibre 6 m/m" on the top flat of the barrel. 5.25" overall with 1 5/8" barrel. All surfaces of the gun delicately engraved with floral and scroll motifs, the floral engraving on the frame highlighted in gold. The engraving is further embellished by being outlined in gold, again displayed on all metal surfaces. All metal smooth and dark gray, mixing with traces of the original blue. The tip of a tiny leaf spring inset on the left side of the frame is broken, not affecting the action, else mechanically perfect, with folding trigger, and original mother of pearl grips with just a few tiny nicks. A very pretty little gun.
