Default Family Heirloom, What is it?

This has been in my family for over 60 years and I suspect it was brought over from Europe. .22Cal. Stamping under the barrel appear to be a King and Queen crown, the capitol letter U, and 450. Under that is a curved T w/ a period

Search for:
Parlor Pistol
or
Flobert Pistol

These were low powered pistols for indoor 'target' shooting.

I think it is a "flobert" as well. There were different sizes, 4mm is one. Some fired a round ball which was hand loaded into a small case similar to a 22 bb cap. If it is 4mm, possibly I can provide you with a couple rounds. It appears to be a very nice example. my ha-penny
