This early 19th Century pair of pocket pistols features removable 2" round .50 caliber smoothbore barrels with lugs on the bottoms and stiff-leaf engraving at the muzzles. The bottoms of both actions are marked with two London proofs. The right sides of the scalloped boxlock actions are engraved with "London" in a cartouche surrounded by arms motifs. The left sides are inscribed "Jackson" and are decorated en suite. Both pistols feature hidden folding triggers, reinforced cocks, and sliding safeties on the tangs, with pins that engage with the frizzens. Both grips are profusely decorated with engraved silver floral inlays and silver wire scrollwork. The bottoms of the grips have silver caps and both are hallmarked. Both pistols have silver shield-shaped vacant wrist escutcheons. CONDITION: One barrel is frozen, the other still removable. All iron components retain a bright surface. Locks are in their original flintlock configurations and function well, with tight actions. Grips are excellent with some minor storage marks and a couple very small slivers of wire absent. One pistol has a minor dent to the right of the wrist escutcheon. A very ornate pair of silver-mounted English pocket pistols. DMG
