It truly is a beautiful gun, the engraving alone is exquisite - and it was relatively cheap by antique revolver standards.

Cluedo's "seventh" weapon, filled with petrol solution. I made the label.

One way I can accept Mrs White in the Study with the Decanter Stopper would be if she hit him with the Stopper, the victim had a heart attack (or a stroke) as she then tried to push the Stopper into the victim's mouth.

We're those bottles in the background alternate options, or just stuff you had around?

There were seven bottles in total as a set. I liked them all, but though this one was the most Clue-like. The others I may fill with other stuff and hide them about the house.

I think the perspective makes it hard to see the size. Can you post a pic of it amongst the other weapons.

I'm now reassured that I'm not the saddest Cluedo-ite around (yet) XD

Here's the Dagger, thus completing the Super Cluedo weapons.

This is a 19th century Romantic French stiletto.

Here are all the weapons together. In future, I might pursue other weapons from special editions, but for now...

That's a beautiful collection. The scale helps visualize it all.

I haven't started a full-sized Cluedo weapon collection, but I have to wonder what our friends and families must think about it ... LOL

Thanks so much. It does take money, and patient hunting to find good picks. For instance, I don't know how or where you would find lead pipe these days. By luck, I found an antique seller in England offering century-old lead organ pipes. I was also lucky to find a revolver at the price I did, considering how much antique pistols are sold for.

Here's how my weapons are currently displayed with the patent Cluedo box. I've also decided that the ax and blunderbuss will be included too very soon - I will mount them on that space on the wall.

You might wonder what I intend to do with all these weapons, besides just display. I am working on a mystery theme project (Clue, perhaps!?) and hope to use them as authentic props for a interactive stage production in the works for Fall.

The axe - English made and 19th century as it appears.

now I just await the blunderbuss.

Swapped out the wrench and gun with ones from my old set that resemble the original pieces more. Just a temporary move for the sake of this display.
