The early locks have unbridled faceted pans and decorative shaped frizzen spring finials. The plain iron mounts include pommel caps, sideplates, triggerguards and single ramrod ferrules. The plain walnut stocks have early form and are slender. Incised cameo carving around ramrod channels, triggerguards, lock and sideplate cavities. Both with relief floral scrolls at barrel tangs and incised decorated spades behind locks and sideplates. Both with horn nose caps. CONDITION: Barrels retain a light grey patina. Locks are both in their original flintlock configurations and function well, retaining some origin polish and some grey patina. One cock has a period repair to neck of cock. One grip is broken and shows a hairline crack. Pommel cap on other is slightly loose with some minor chipping above it on left side. Both ramrods are absent. One of the smallest pairs of pistols that the cataloguer has seen. DMG
