    RARE, Cased, C1860’s John Wurfflein Philadelphia USA .25 Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Brass Framed Derringer With Octagonal Barrel & Accessories, Case Marked To Cyril Gee 148 Hadfield Road Hadfield (Glossop Derbyshire). Sn 16115 - 16115

    This is an excellent cased derringer by one of the rarer makers John Wurfflein recorded as a gunsmith with patents in Philadelphia USA from 1848-1860, made sometime in the early 1860’s. This example has a brass frame with foliate decoration & original American Walnut grip which has no damage. It has a 3 ½” octagonal steel barrel & measures 6 ½” overall. The smooth bore has staining consistent with age & use. It has a sheathed trigger and brass blade foresight. The rear sight consists of a notch in the hammer spur. The top of the barrel is crisply signed by the manufacturer ‘Wurfflein’. There are no visible external numbers on this derringer. The derringer's loading and firing actions work perfectly. The barrel pivots for loading at half cock and the barrel is released for loading by depression of a small steel button on the underside of the action. The derringer is contained in its period fitted wood case with hinged lid and lock (key absent). The case has a brass plate applied to the centre of the lid engraved ‘Cyril gee 148 Hadfield Road, Hadfield (Glossop Derbyshire)’. The inside of the case is lined with padded blue velvet and has cut out sections which snugly fit the pistol. One compartment has a removable lid and another has cut out slots to hold ammunition. The case also includes a brass cleaning rod with removable wood handle. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre antique pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16115
