Pepperbox Pistol by Robbins & Lawrence, Windsor, Vermont - SOLD

This Robbins & Lawrence large frame .31 caliber pepperbox has a ribbed 4.5-inch barrel group with serial number 4084; engraved frame as well as barrels. Samuel E. Robbins and Richard S. Lawrence worked in Windsor, Vermont from about 1851 to 1854. A total of about 7,000 of these pepperboxes were manufactured in three variations and two calibers. With this example the barrel hinges down for loading; the number 190 is heavily struck on right side of barrel breech; number 390 appears on the face of the barrel breech. The pistol is mechanically fine with excellent markings and a clean light gray metal finish; walnut grips are excellent. There is a almost invisible glued crack on the right side of the grips; one replaced screw in the hinge.
