A scarce American Sharps style engraved 4 barrel blued derringer in obsolete .30 r/f calibre.

Decorative engraving to both sides of the nickel plated brass frame. The four barrels retaining 70% of it's original blued finish. Finely chequered grips. Action in good working order. Manufactured circa 1859-1870. Overall length 5.5 inches. In good condition and retaining retaining some of it's original blued finish. A fine example of a four barrelled Derringer. Ref 1862.
