very nice defence pistol, with chest and forced bullet, period Louis-Philippe (1820/30), with a Manufacture control stamp under the barrel.

half-loaded and loaded positions hold well with very clear percussion

- chest and trigger guard finely engraved
- blond walnut butt in perfect condition
- very slight play on the hammer in resting position, no play in the loaded and half-loaded position
