Item Description: Translate description
Pair of extra fine and deluxe engraved 1849 Colt Pocket Models in original rosewood case with 4” barrels, blue and case hardened finish, ivory grips, S/N 102803 & 102805. The pair are intricately engraved by Gustave Young with very tight and fine scrolls, hand cut barrel address, cob webs, hand cu Colts patent in banners, and his recognizable floral and beast intertwined. The screw heads are also engraved and the pattern is fancier than normally found. The pair show 75%-85% original finish with minor losses and normal aging. A few very small areas of minor erosion and pinprick pitting. The majority of their original cylinder scenes remain intact. The grips are near fine with impeccable fit and slight yellow patina due to natural aging. The grips are absolutely the originals to this set. Sharp markings and all matching visible numbers. Tight actions and crisp overall. The majority of darkened silver plate on trigger guards. The rosewood case is very good plus to almost fine with just minor and normal aging. Slight fading and impressions at contact points. The case is also genuine and original to the period. An excellent mold flask and nipple wrench are retained showing almost all their original finish. Two unopened cartridge packs and Eley cap tin with full labels also included. Extra original spare parts and lead balls. The exterior of the case is veneered rosewood in very good plus condition with some slight scratches, very minor cracks and minimal aging. A deluxe and fine set of 49 pockets from a major southern California collection that would please the sophisticated engraved Colt collector. (Antique) Est.: $25,000-$50,000
