Dean Adams & Dean Percussion Revolver 1856

A reasonable condition 54 bore 5 shot Dean Adams & Dean percussion revolver from around 1856. Many of which came to the colonies during the Gold Rush and Bushranger ears.
The octagonal barrel measures 6 inches with the whole revolver measuring 11 ½ inches. The address line ‘DEAN ADAMS & DEAN (MAKERS TO H R H PRINCE ALBERT) 30 KING WILLIAM ST LONDON BRIDGE’ is clear as is the cylinder proofs and engraving on the frame.
The Patent / serial number ‘1307’ is on the frame and also on the trigger tang. There are no number visible on the cylinder. The finely checked walnut grip is in good condition with some minor bruising.
The action works with the trigger pull raising and lowering the hammer and rotating the cylinder. The cylinder is loose and spins freely when the safety is applied.
The cylinder locking spring and the safety spring appear to be very well made replacements.
All in all an honest example that would display well.
