Third Model 54 Bore Double Trigger Tranter Revolver, c.1855Selling on consignment: Production of Tranter's Double Trigger percussion revolvers began in 1853 when these early percussion revolvers were built on Adams' frames, with actions modified by James Kerr. The first model had no rammer, but this was soon remedied with the introduction of the Second and then Third model, which now had a side-mounted rammer secured to the frame by a screw.
This Tranter is a good Third Model, which has retained strong traces of original blue and a fully working action. It is unsigned along the top-strap, with minimal lined decoration, suggesting that it likely belonged to a military man. Much of the metalwork is now showing a dark age patina and the revolver benefits from retaining its original undamaged grips and good nipples - Only the nose of the hammer is a little short but this does not affect the cosmetic appearance and can be easily remedied.
Overall, a good example of a classic Victorian revolver design.

Belgian Constable .320 Pocket Revolver, c.1890Named on the top-strap as the "Belgian Constable" this genre of pocket revolver was sold throughout Europe and Britain during the late 19th century. They were a serious competitor to Webley, being chambered for the obsolete .320 British cartridge.
Ornately engraved and nickel-plated, this solid-frame revolver retains most of its original finish, as well as its elaborate grips, which are undamaged. The overall crisp appearance suggests that this revolver may have been purchased for home-defence, possibly having been left in a desk drawer with its lanyard ring removed. It is still in full working order with strong springs.
A good Liege proofed example for the collector.
Barrel length = 2½ inches
Overall length = 6 inches
Pre WW1 Army BugleA very good copper and brass army bugle made in London by Henry Potter & Co. and dated to 1909. Military bugles often led a hard life and few remain in such sound condition. Exhibiting only minor service dents, the trumpet end of the bugle is undamaged, with overall great age related patina.
Completely original, this bugle is capable of delivering a good range of sound and comes with its issue mouthpiece, also signed to Potter.
All in all, a lovely example of a British Army bugle, together with the issue tassels.

US Made Adams .31 Percussion Revolver, c.1858Selling on consignment: A rare US .31 pocket revolver made for the Adams Revolving Arms Co. of New York, by Massachusetts Arms Company of Chicopee Falls. Based closely on the British Adams pistols, these slim and very concealable revolvers offered advantages over the Colt Pocket models of the era. Having a solid frame and double action mechanism accessible through a side-plate, these Adams revolvers made for a great back-up piece, only losing out to Colt in respect of having a 5-shot cylinder and their limited availability, as only 4,500 of these desirable revolvers were ever made.
Presented in working order with good grips and much original but dull blue colour, rubbed and fading from carry, this revolver is nevertheless in collectable condition.
Barrel length = 3¼ inches
Overall length = 8 inches
