Circa 1770, both with tapered brass barrels swamped at the muzzles. Left sides of breeches stamped with British private view and proof marks, as well as "IB" cartouche for Joseph Brander. Tops with an engraved teardrop border surrounding "HALL LONDON". Lockplates have rounded faces and scroll-engraved designs. Centers marked "HALL". Fine paktong furniture including ramrod ferrules, triggerguards terminating in acorn finials, full stirrup pommel caps with grotesque mask caps, sideplates with military motifs, and wrist escutcheons with a helmet and arms. Both pistols are stocked in plain walnut and are of classic Georgian form. Both have extensive silver-wire-inlaid shell designs around the barrel tangs and relief panels around the locks and sideplates. Both wooden ramrods appear to be original and have iron caps. CONDITION: Very good, overall. Barrels polished and excellent and crisp markings and proofs. Locks are both crisp and function well. Both are in their original flintlock configuration and retain a nearly bright surface, markings excellent. Furniture is polished and shows some light high edge wear. Stocks have been refinished and both wrists have repaired breaks. One pistol with a small piece of wood replaced around barrel pin on left side. A very attractive pair of Revolutionary War period officer's pistols.
