Anti-Garrotte Belt Gun, c.1860
A curious and rare, unnamed muzzle loading belt gun designed during the London Garrotting Panic of the 1860s. With newspapers articles telling of the Garrotting Gang, mercilessly attacking victims from behind, Londoners were gripped by fear. Their panic resulted in various devices, such as protective neck collars, becoming commercially available. However, one of the most effective items must have been Ball's Patent anti-garrotte belt gun.

As with the Ball's pistol, this belt gun was worn around the waist, resting in the small of the back. Fired by the pull of a string, the gun would have been devastating at close range, discharging from its short barrel, directly into the groin of the assailant.

Presented in full working order, this profusely decorated version of an anti-garrotte gun is complete with its original leather belt, which remains supple. A rare survivor from a violent time in the history of London.

WD Issue Beaumont Adams Percussion Revolver c.1855
A genuine War Department contract 54 bore Beaumont Adams percussion revolver, with the top strap engraved, "London Armoury" (inscription visible but rubbed and worn).

With its original finish faded to a grey-brown patina, this Beaumont Adams revolver has crisp WD and broad arrow marks but has seen extensive military service. It nevertheless remains in working order but does exhibit some worn nipples.

Curiously, this pistol has some unusual decoration to the butt beneath the lanyard hole, where several circular indents have been carved. Two of them (or perhaps all of them at some point) had been set with glass "jewels". Whilst the exact purpose of this decorative embellishment is not known, it might lead to interesting speculation.

Certainly, it is uncommon to find any British martially marked revolvers from this period, as officers were expected to purchase their own. However, it was the NCO's that were issued with these, brought in for the Crimean War.

Overall, a very interesting martially marked British Army revolver.

Barrel length = 6 inches
Overall length = 12˝ inches
