This one has probably been posted before, but just in case, take a look at http://percussionrevolvers.com/index.php?topic=365.msg383#msg383  I ran across it while searching for images of engraved 1860s.

The gripframe was what got me.  It is far more elegant and fitting to the period of use than some of the modern efforts along similar lines.  Don't know for sure, but I suspect that button is for some carry or retention device, not a Bridgeport rig but maybe something similar?

Isn't that also called a avenging angel (or something with "avenging" in the name)?
