Friedrich Weiland (1828-1861) of Cassel, Hesse, Germany was active in the mid-19th century. The rifled barrels have dovetailed blade front sights, "F. WEILAND IN CASSEL" in gold inlay, and "GUSSSTAHL" at the breech ends. "0" is on the bottom of the barrel and breech plug of "A," and "1" is in the same locations on "B" as well as on the inside of the forend. The locks are signed "F. WEILAND/IN CASSEL" and have rotating hammer stalls. The locks and furniture have scroll engraving. The standing breeches have adjustable notch rear sights, and the pistols are fired with adjustable double set triggers. The wedge escutcheons are silver. The stocks have Schnabel forend tips and checkered panels on the wrists. They come in an attractive burlwood veneer case with a loading rod, cleaning rod, powder flask, nipple wrench, screwdriver, conical bullet mold, powder measure, cap container, and key.
Very good with the original brown finish mostly fading to smooth patina on the barrel, minor pitting, mostly gray patina on the furniture, crisp engraving, distinct markings, and minor wear mostly from age and storage. The stock is fine and has crisp checkering, a few dings and scratches, and nearly all of the glossy finish. Mechanically excellent. The case and accessories are fine and have mild age and storage related wear including some chipping at the edges and a crack in the bottom of the case.
