DescriptionThe revolver combines a double action revolver with folding German silver knuckles and a 3 1/2 inch folding dagger. "DOLNE-BAR/INVUR" is stamped under the serial number on the right side of the frame at the front. There are some small proofmarks that appear to be English. The Apache revolver received its nickname from the Parisian street gangs of the late 19th century and early 20th century. These criminals were particularly fond of using hand to hand combat. The brass knuckles obviously fit this style well. The revolver and knife were also suitable for use in a multi-person attack that was commonly used: one member of the gang would garotte the victim with a scarf or similar item while the other picked through their pockets for valuables. They could be used as a threat to ensure compliance.

ConditionVery fine. 80% of the bright original high polish blue finish, and the balance has a mix of aged patinas and some slight spotting. The action functions fine, and the markings are mostly clear.
