Transitional revolver

Transitional percussion revolver owned by Captain Richard Woodget, 1847-1928. The stock has two-piece chequered walnut grips applied to the butt which has a flat end. The frame is of iron with a scroll design round the frame and grip. They were produced in the 1850s as an answer to the more expensive revolvers produced by Colt. This example was owned by Richard Woodget, Captain of the tea clipper the 'Cutty Sark' from 1885 for her last ten voyages under British ownership. According to his nephew 'this revolver was always with him on his voyages..I am told that once, rounding Cape Horn in a bad storm, the men wanted to abandon ship, so Captain Woodget disabled the lifeboats with an axe, took his gun from the case, loaded it and said 'Now my men we will all sink or swim together'.
