?'s RE: 1920's German 7.65 mm Ortgie - Deutsche Werke Mfg...


I am completely new to this and know NOTHING about guns, but recently an antique pistol was passed along to me and I was looking to gain some information about it.

All I know is it has:
CAL 7.65 m/m engraved on one side and the other side has:

Ortgies Patent
deuteche werke aktiengengesellschaft
werk erfurt

engraved on it.

Engraved Underneath the barrel is a number, I think it was 41800 or something like that. The handle is metal, but has a wood panel-like piece with a symbol or emblem on it.

I would like to know more about this item and it's history and value. Any information is appreciated. I Have included a photo as well.
Thank you for your help.
