World's oldest revolver, circa 1597

Once it was a status symbol, with its decorations in brass, bone and mother-of-pearl. More than 400 years later it is well preserved in a cellar in Lillehammer, Norway. The revolver belonged to the German Georg von Reichswein. He was a professional soldier and fought on the Danish-Norwegian side in the 30-year war (1618-1648).
