    Description

    Very Rare 4mm Blank Pistol by Kolibri. One of a series of semi miniature, small caliber, handguns, characterized as "car pistols," produced by Frederich Pfanni, Rehrberg, Austria, all of which are extremely rare. Just 3 3/16" overall, single shot, tip up action, marked Austria on the left side of the barrel housing. Overall about mint, retaining 98% of the original blue with, ribbed wood plaque grips perfect. Accompanied by the original paste board box, missing one side of the lid, else excellent. Interestingly Pfanni was an Austrian watchmaker and Kolibri is, appropriately, a Germanic term for hummingbird. Fascinating little gun in pristine condition.
