The percussion pepper-box was invented around the 1830s and was intended for civilian use but military officers often made private purchases for their own use.

James Ewell Brown “Jeb” Stuart (1833-1864) was a U.S. Army officer and later a Major General and cavalry commander for the Confederate States of America during the Civil War (1861-65). In 1857 he was shot in the chest at point blank range with a pepper-box by a Cheyenne warrior, Stuart survived probably due rumour has it, to a very weak powder charge. Pepper-box revolvers were also carried during the American civil war 1861-1865. Case hardened frame. Decorative engraving to the trigger guard and bar hammer. Finely chequered two-piece grips. 3 inch barrels stamped with British proof marks. In good condition showing hardly any sign of use or wear and retaining much original finish.
