Description:

Revolver manufactured c. 1859-1862. This set reportedly came from a casino museum in Reno, but no documents accompany the lot. The 8x11x6 inch pine gamblers box has a tray under the lid, two half width drawers and a large drawer on the bottom which contains an Allen & Wheelock sidehammer revolver, a 4 7/8 inch antique ivory handled bowie knife and approximately 95 antique ivory poker chips. The top tray contains a dice cup with two dice, a modern two blade pocket knife, a carved antique ivory card press with one decorative finial broken off and missing, white antique ivory checkers, various markers, white chips, red chips, blue chips, and a drawer pull for the bottom drawer. The left small drawer contains a deck of Samuel Hart 1888 cards with George & Martha Washington on the ace of spades, and "Boxer" iron "brass" knuckles retaining most of the red paint. The right small drawer contains a Faro deck (four of each card, all hearts). A solid antique ivory weekly note pad with a small metal pencil and two pairs of dice. The face of the drawers are decorated with antique ivory beads, pulls, etc. The bottom one, with club decoration is broken. The hammer of the revolver sometimes does not properly remain in the cocked position.
