Cased, Victorian British Officer’s Reilly London Adams Patent 38 Calibre 5 Shot Double Action Percussion Revolver To Lieut General Julian Hamilton Hall Coldstream Guards (Saw Action In The Crimean War) With Accessories. Sn 18756 - 18756
Born the son of Sir John Hall, 5th Baronet, Julian Hamilton Hall (1837-1911) was commissioned as an ensign in the Coldstream Guards on 2 August 1854. He saw action in the Crimean War. He became commanding officer of the Cheshire Regiment in May 1883 before moving on to be Assistant-Adjutant and Quartermaster-General at Headquarters Home District in December 1884 and General Officer Commanding North Western District in April 1890; he retired in April 1895 (an A4 size printout from Internet resources containing the above antecedents accompanies the pistol). Robert Adams was shop manager for George and John Deane of 30 King William St., London Bridge, and designed the revolver came to be known as the Deane Adams Deane model. Adams split with the Deane firm in 1856. The Deane firm remained at 30 King William St. and became "Dean and son". Until the arrival of Samuel Colt at the Great Exhibition of 1851 with his display of percussion revolvers, British gun makers had largely neglected this style of weapon except for pepperbox revolvers. The arrival of Colt with his American methods of promoting business caused much resentment in the British gun trade. The outcome was a surge in quality revolver design and production by British makers including Deane Adams & Deane & Deane & Son & other British Gunmakers. These British revolvers were popular private purchase items for British officers. This is an excellent, original, cased, Reilly London Adams patent 5 shot percussion revolver. The weapon's firing mechanism works as it should, correctly, in double action only. It has a 4 ½” octagonal barrel (9 ¾” overall). The rifled bore is clean. The barrel has a blade fore sight & notched plate on the frame rear sight. The top of the frame is signed ‘Reilly New Oxford Street London’. It has foliate engraving to the frame & trigger guard. The frame is engraved ‘Adams Patent’ ‘No.201208Y’ and ‘Julian Hall Coldstrm Gds’ indicating that this revolver was bought by the Officer for his Crimea War service. The barrel & cylinder have English black powder proofs. Its finely chequered walnut grip is in excellent undamaged condition and it has a steel butt plate. The pistol's metal work is undamaged with original blue finish which has even patina. The pistol is contained in its original Mahogany case with hinged lid. The top of the lid is inlaid with a void central brass roundel. The case has a brass lock (key absent). The case is lined with green felt and has a nice Reilly Gunmaker London trade label with New Oxford Street address.
