Пара Пистолетов. ударный кремневый. Европа. 18 век. фото 26-01

Three stage 12 3/4" round .60 cal. barrels, chiseled with geometric designs, crescent, and stands of arms, all heavily gilt. Unsigned lockplate with chiseled and gilt crescent and stands of arms. Cock, frizzen and top jaws chiseled and gilt to match. Silver gilt trigger guard, pommel, barrel band, ramrod thimbles, and escutcheon exquisitely cast in relief with stands of arms and a knight’s head on the pommel. Burl walnut fullstock completely covered with fine silver wire floral decoration. Wood ramrods with ivory tips (one tip missing). This magnificent set made at the height of French imperial power, undoubtedly for an Eastern potentate. It is of incredible workmanship and condition overall, retaining 95% plus original gilt and finish with only negligible silver losses. Hard to top the quality and condition of this pair even in the world’s finest museums. One top jaw and screw excellent exact copies of the originals. Photographs cannot do this pair justice. Please e-mail seller for additional photos.
