Description

Not much is known of the Norwich Arms / Norwich Falls Pistol Co. except that they were once a private contractor making muskets for the union forces during the civil war. After the war they undoubtedly turned to the lucrative civilian market providing cheap personal protection in the form of pocket pistols to the citizenry of the USA. They were sold until 1881 through the New York retailer Maltby, Curtis & Co. The Norwich Falls Pistol Co. was apparently owned by Otis Smith, a small New England gun and tool maker. This particular example has rare, sculpted “Tiffany Style” metal grips depicting a forest scene with trees and stags in fine condition. The original finish on the frame and cylinder is all but gone, covering the gun in a brownish grey patina. The action works as it should. 2 1/2 inch barrel, crisp markings on top “NORWICH ARMS CO. 32” and “PAT’D APRIL 28 1878” on the side. SN 4999, rated very good overall.
