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.
