Both of these small and attractive circa 1720-1740 pocket pistols feature removable threaded turned barrels. The boxlock actions are engraved on both sides with repeating bellflower designs and "Belhome" on the right sides with "Bordeaux" on the left sides. Both feature early swan-neck cocks. Engraved iron trigger guards. Figured walnut bag grips with ornate relief floral carving around barrel tangs and panels carved behind actions. Both have small shield-shaped mother of pearl inlays on spines. CONDITION: Barrels and actions retain a grey patina. Markings excellent. Both barrels are still removable. Actions are strong, but one pistol does not hold in cock or half cock positions. Grips excellent with some minor storage marks. A very fine pair of early French French pocket pistols. DMG
