MHG658  CASED FRENCH PARLOR PISTOL On the bbl is "F. P. Caron, Arq. DE S.M. L' EMPEREUR A PARIS" . Caron was the gunmaker for Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte (President/Emperor Napoleon III).

He served from 1848 to 1852 and seized power as Emperor and reigned until 1870. Based on this history, this pistol was produced between 1852 and 1870. This single shot is of the Flobert variety. A very simple mechanism as the hammer does all the functions. This is for the small 5.5mm rim fire. 9" oct bbl with engraving towards the chamber and also at the muzzle. Deep relief engraving on the stock towards the front and a typical French pistol grip with a very ornate pistol grip cap. Likewise the trigger guard is European style engraving also.
