Santa Barbara in Nickel
This example of the revolver in nickel plate surfaced in a Spanish auction house in 2010. The catalog description suggested that the piece came from a member of the factory workforce
The serial number carried a “10” at the beginning, so one suspects the nickel finish represents post-purchase custom work, not a special finish applied at the factory.
This very beautiful version features a hammer accented in a matt finish.
Typ 3 in "Nickel dress"
Here we find the serpent engraving and also the little flowers again.
The ivory-like handle fits perfectly to the nickel-plated overall picture.
A real beauty!
