petite rings

If I had a dollar every time someone said I looked like I was from Lord of the Rings… I could buy my own Shire, three elves, seven dwarves, nine men, one dark lord and one very precious ring.

London-made French “le Petit Protector du Fromage

Manufactured by J. Hinds, English watchmaker and jeweler.
4mm pinfire six-round manually indexed cylinder, German silver band circled with blued steel hammer spring, no serial number of course as these were produced in the 20th century as one-off artificial curios.

These gadgets would have been popular in the early 19th century, with the invention of self-contained cartridges by Frenchmen such as Casimir Lefaucheux making all sorts of weird firearms available to the discerning gentleman. Pinfire cartridges remain the ammunition of choice to this day when extremely small jeweler’s guns are concerned.
The small protectors were the 4mm and 5mm version, but a 2mm alternative of this bauble also exist, named the “Femme Fatale” -le woman that kills you.
