This percussion, six-shot, double-action bar hammer pocket pistol is a nice “pepperbox-style” specimen produced by the Allen & Thurber firm of Worcester, Massachusetts between 1845 and 1854. Pistol is a .32 caliber weapon with a 3 7/8” long, revolving screw-off, fluted barrel. Total revolver length is approximately 7½”. Two-piece grips are walnut, varnished and are in very good condition. Frame, lock, hammer, and barrel are all covered with light pitting and darker spotting. Revolver features factory engraving in a floral motif executed on both sides of the frame. Strong mechanics. Nipples intact, not chipped or broken. One of the barrel facets clearly shows “ALLEN THURBER & CO.  WORCESTER” another facet has “PATENTED / 1845”. Screw heads are in good shape. A nice, original “pepperbox” revolver. [jet]
