Can you identify this revolver?

A reader emailed me these photos of a revolver which belonged to his Grandfather during WWI. It looks to me like a fancy Webley. Does anyone know what model gun it is and who made it?

    Andrews Fryberg made millions of these, literally, they were a cheap pocket gun. Sold for six dollars new. I have my Grandfathers that he bought new, cylander is to sloppy to ever shoot but has sentimental value. These were made around 1903.

      @Topper Topper, 10-4 my Great Grandfather in 1903 was a Doctor in Covington, KY and had a circuit he did throughout the area, There were hiwaymen and so he carried it with him. When he passed on, he gave it to my Grandfather who gave it to my mother and now I have it. I have the Pat Aug 4,1903 3" .32 with the exact same scrolling pattern as in this picture. Nice to know its history . Thanks.... JB
