Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 3258. A good example of a Tipping & Lawden four barrelled .30 cal rim-fire Sharps patent derringer. Circa 1865. The 3 inch barrels retaining much of their original blue finish. Tipping & Lawden Sharps patent marked on one side of the frame. British proof marks to the barrels. In good condition retaining approx 70% of its original blued finish. Action in good working order. Overall length 6 inches. A good example of a scarce Tipping & Lawden Derringer. Slightly larger than a gentleman’s pocket watch, Sharps’s palm-sized Derringer was a favorite with gamblers and others who felt they needed protection and wished to keep their ace in the hole secreted out of sight. Below is a picture showing two gentlemen engaging in a game of cards with a Sharps derringer prominently displayed in the centre of the table, no doubt to remind them that this should be an honest game. Ref 3258. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card. Established 1968.
