The Oddment Emporium

A Cornucopia of Eclectic Delights

A Pistol Disguised as a Ladle

I’ve posted before about pistols moonlighting as gaol keys, now I present a gun disguised as a … ladle:

A rare Japanese single-shot Percussion Ladle or Ink Pot Gun, c. 1850. A .36 caliber, 9 1/2-inch bronze barrel disguised as handle of ladle with a hinged sheet brass breech and hammer cover designed to disguise mechanism. 

One minute you’re serving soup, the next you’re popping a cap in someone’s ass!

    But wouldn’t using it as a ladle get the gun mechanism or whatever all wet and nonfunctional? Still awesome, though.
