Tiffany Grip Craftsmanship

Tiffany Grip Craftsmanship

Beauty and craftsmanship are in Colt's blood.  This incredible piece of artisan history was manufactured at Colt in collaboration with jeweler Tiffany circa 1870's. The frame, barrel & trigger guard are silver plated and the hammer & cylinder are gold plated and beautifully engraved throughout.  Tiffany’s collaborations with Colt began in the 1850s and peaked during the Civil War. 

Founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany, what became Tiffany & Co. commenced business just one year after the young inventor Samuel Colt registered his new designs for revolving pistols and long arms with the U.S. Patent Office. In the 187years since then, the paths of Tiffany & Co. and Colt crossed many times.
