Floyd E. Warren ENGRAVED COLT Model 1849 POCKET .31 Cal PERCUSSION Revolver
Golden Eagle, Bison, Rampant Colt, and Prairie Dog
Here we present an antique percussion Colt Model 1849 Pocket Revolver, made during the American Civil War in 1863 in Hartford, Connecticut. This beautiful example was professionally engraved by Floyd E. Warren in Ohio in 1995. Mr. Warren was born in Ohio in 1917. He began engraving circa 1946 and was mentored by New York gun builder and engraver Roy Vail. It is said that he began to lose his vision later in life, which caused him to cease his work, but evolutions in medicine allowed him to begin again!
This original Colt 1849 Pocket Revolver features the longer 6” barrel and the roll-marked stagecoach robbery scene on the cylinder, which has been traced in gold. The barrel has a very distinct punch-dot motif along the length of every facet of the octagonal barrel. The rest of the revolver features scroll engraving in panels outlined with gold borders. Molded golden animals (eagle, bison, horse, prairie dog) were placed and engraved on the gun to create a one-of-a-kind piece. The barrel bears the engraver’s signature on the bottom barrel flat, normally hidden underneath the loading lever.
The overall condition is fine. Bright blue and gold refinishing. Intact stagecoach robbery cylinder scene. Strong action. The bore is mostly bright. This example is deeply engraved with traditional floral designs and images of wild game. Both grips are in fine shape. The numbers match. A very handsome antique Colt with Western themed engraving!
