    Continental Velo-Dog 6 Shot Revolver With Pearl Grips & Folding Trigger With Small Folding Penknife Both Contained In A Concealable 'Bible' Book Case. Sn 4255

    The Velo-Dog pistol was a pocket revolver originally created in France by Charles-François Galand in the late 19th century as a defence for cyclists against dog attacks. The name is a portmanteau of "velocipede" and "dog". The pistols fired 5.75mm Velo-Dog ammunition which is now an obsolete calibre. Surviving examples vary considerably in appearance. All have short barrels. Many of the weapons have a trigger that folds into the body of the weapon when not in use. This is an original closed frame 6 shot, Velo-Dog revolver. It has a fluted cylinder and 1 1/2" barrel (5 1/4" overall). It has lovely mother of pearl grips which are undamaged. It is side gate loading and has a shrouded hammer to prevent snagging on clothing. It has a lever safety to the rear of the action and the metal work has scroll engraving. It has a folding trigger. The firing action is faulty in that the trigger operates the hammer but does not fully turn the cylinder. The clearing rod housing is stamped '20'. The pistol is accompanied by a small penknife with 2 single edged folding blades (1 1/2" and 1" lengths). The penknife has nice undamaged mother of pearl scales. It has no manufacturer's marks. Both are contained in a hand crafted case purposely crafted from a book for concealment in a Library/ book case. The books original pages have been glued together and a compartment to house the pistol 'cut out' to give the appearance of individual pages when closed. The front of the 'book' has gold coloured lettering ' Holy Bible New International Version' and the spine has a gold cartouche. The book opens to reveal a purple felt lined segmented compartment to hold the pistol and penknife. As an obsolete calibre, antique, weapon no licence is required to possess this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 4255
