On the lockplate on the side of this pistol is a button in the form of a tiny mask. This can be pressed to open the lid of the cover of the pan (the powder container) mechanically, thereby simplifying operation of the pistol. This fine weapon demonstrates the lavish use of various materials and detailed inlay work.
