Punch & Judy Cap Pistol
By Ives, Blakeslee & Company. Connecticut - 1880's - 5" Long. Ex-Gertrude Hegarty Collection. In this great animated cap pistol, the Ives Company has fashioned another amusing image of Great Britain's iconic battling couple Punch and Judy. She stands at the gun barrel's edge dressed in layers of crinoline and her arms akimbo. Master Punch stands behind her. He is characterized with a large swollen belly, a crescent shaped jawline and a massive beaky nose. When the trigger is pulled, Punch flops forward and his legendary proboscis explodes the cap placed between Judy's shoulders.
