Yep, the smart people will need some pictures for the ID.

If it isn't so old, the flintlock will narrow it down some, i'd bet.

Does it look like any of these current production models:

Those aren't screw barrels. I think what she's referring to are what's commonly called a ladies muff pistol like these.

They were made by the thousands in England and Belgium. Birmingham and Belgian guns weren't very good quality. The ones made in London were better. Value is nominal.
