SOLD - Beautiful Gold Damascened Spanish 'Bufalo'
3/1/18 - This is an exquisite example of a pre-war Spanish Bufalo pocket pistol, chambered in .25 cal. It has about 40% coverage of very good quality Gold Damascening, which was essentially an engraving with gold foil pressed into the engraving lines in Cloisonné style. Very few were embellished in this fashion as the process was very labor intensive and pricey. The gun is in excellent original condition and has all of its damascening work intact with about 95% of original blue remaining. The grips are real MOP grips with “Indian Head Penny” medallions and are without defects. Bore has some corrosion in the grooves. A true piece of art!
