Presentation Revolver, given to Cap't McCullem on Oct 14th, 1787

I have a presentation revolver, given to one "Cap't McCullem" on Oct 14th, 1787, by The Merchants of Glasgow. The case has that information engraved on a (brass?) plaque. Inside is an 8 barrel revolver (flintlock) as well as various tools, all of which have what is presumably heavily engraved ornate ivory handles. There's a barrel tool, tamping tool, bullet mold and handle for same, powder flask and a flint container. Engraved in the metal of the gun iself is "Twigg" on one side and "London" on the other.
