In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt promoted Hough to brigadier general on the retired list in recognition of his decades of service. He died in 1908 and was survived by his son Judge Charles M. Hough of New York City as well as by his daughter Mary Hepburn Hall.
Greg Lampe indicated that the pair was inherited by Judge Hough after his father’s death and then left to the judge’s only son, Dr. John Newbold Hough, after the former’s death in 1927. They were in Albert Foster Jr.’s collection by at least as early as the 1940s if not before and may have been purchased by him directly from the family. The set was subsequently owned by Herb Glass Sr. by the 1960s when they were featured in “Samuel Colt Presents” and were purchased by Lampe in 2008. The flask is original to the set but was separated from the set when Lampe purchased the pair, and then he later purchased it from the set’s prior owner of the set and returned it to its proper place.
CONDITION: Excellent. The revolver retains 95% plus of its overall finish with the main loss being some flaking on the cylinder. Essentially all of the vibrant original case colors remain, and the grip frame displays attractive age darkened patina on the silver. The markings remain crisp throughout. The grip
is also excellent and retains essentially all of the original varnish and has only light storage marks. The case is very fine and has minor handling and storage wear.
