My name is Valtaine.
That's the way I am, through my skin, through my feelings, through mysticism and faith, through spiritualistic and materialistic needs, fascinated by the occult. The essence of a man and his love for the arts, the nature, the everything beautiful. That's the way I am, I'm an eclectic, eccentric and egocentric aesthete
I'm the owner and wax sculptor from the jewellry brand Reliquia Arcana.
This is rather interesting. This is an unfinished pattern for a waistcoat dating to about 1760, and it looks to have potentially been a stunning one. The material is silk, with metal thread and sequins. In the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Made during the later half of the 19th century this strange pistol is certainly an oddity to behold. Since the pistol lacked a trigger it was fired by squeezing it which released the firing pin. It was fed from an internal magazine which held a number of 8mm cartridges. The magazine was loaded from the top of the frame. Cycling the cartridges was done by working the plunger on the grip of the pistol with the lower two fingers. This retracted the bolt which ejected empty casings and loaded new cartridges from the magazine.
