Protection for a Jewel case
French oddity pistol.
Small brass shell containing a single shot percussion device activating by opening the upper lid.
The tekst on the outside in French reads : Prenez Garde A celui qui me vole'. This means, Be careful you who wants to steal me.
Perfect protection to be put in a jewelbox. Comes in a period small purse. Extremely rare and highly collectable oddity.
