Description:

This pair of pistols features flourishes of floral engraving on the lock plates along with an acorn on the right and bell shape on the left. The left side of both barrels are marked with a symbol similar to "2" and a Liege proof, with two more proofs on the bottom of the barrels. They are each fitted with a sliding hammer stall and a checkered grip with carved scallops on the flats.

Rating Definition:

Very good, the iron showing mostly a bright grey patina with a few scattered patches of light surface pitting and an attractive antique patina on the brass with some slightly softened markings. The grip is also very good with a few minor blemishes and flat spots in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
