Ring-shaped pistol "Femme Fatale"

It seems to have been made in 1870 for women's defense, written as "R. M. Waylett, 126, Wigmore St., Portman Square, London W.1". It seems that there are seven cylinders and six bullets.

Because the name "Femme Fatale" means "a woman of magicalness", it seems to be a thing for a woman of such status to own.

Details are as below.

Surely it may be a gift

It tends to be thought whether such things can really fire, but it seems to be a pepper box type as a principle of operation. It is explained below.
