Brass Barreled Original Flintlock Pistols, Pair, Folding Bayonets, Thomas & Storrs London, Circa 1820, entire view

Top flats marked LONDON with commercial Birmingham proofs on left side of breech.

The pistols are mounted with spring loaded, top mounted steel folding bayonets, retained by
sliding bolts on barrel tangs. The locks are engraved “THOMAS & STORRS” with border
engraving; also, sunburst and floral engraving; locks are fitted with flat serpentine unsupported
cock, sliding safeties, bridled roller frizzen; waterproof pans, frizzen springs with rounded finials.
The walnut stocks are brass mounted with vacant oval silver thumb plates. The stock is
attached to barrel with two keys [no escutcheons], brass tipped ramrods retain worms and
appear to be original. The brass trigger guard terminates with engraved pineapple finials; the
bows are engraved. Condition is very good to fine; brass with old polish displays a light mustard
patina; iron and steel is mostly gray with traces of finish in protected areas. The beautiful walnut
stocks are sound and solid with scatted and minor cosmetic blemishes consistent with age and
use; small area of smooth shallow gouging [more like denting with NO raised grain] between
backend of trigger guard and lock plateau that is not offensive. Mechanically fine;
clear smooth bores.

$9,200.00 the pair

(1310-59) [1451]
