These were once popular in Europe where they were known as "Parlor Pistols".
They were actually often used in parlors to do informal target practice, usually into a target placed in the fire place to act as a "bullet" stop.

I say "bullet" because these were more on the order of a pellet gun that used a tiny primer charge in the cartridge as the propellant.
These were made in many European countries with quality ranging from poor to excellent quality examples.
These were sold in just about any type of store, including tobacco shops and barber shops.

Value is usually not high. Ammunition is often of a size that's long obselete and no longer available.
Even if it will chamber, NEVER attempt to fire any real ammo. Some may chamber the .22 short but even this is more then the guns were made for.
