Both pistols feature octagonal barrels with hooked patant breeches, top flats marked "LONDON", English proofs on bottoms of barrels. Breeches each have a gold band and engraved scrolls. Flat lockplates with engraved scrolls and centers marked "MILES" ; sliding half cock safeties at rear tangs. Solid gold oval barrel key escutcheons, vacant shield wrist escutcheons, shields on panel opposite locks, and with a crescent moon below a star on left sides. Engraved steel triggerguards and end caps. Both pistols feature adjustable set triggers. Plain walnut stocks with checkering around grips and carved flower on each pommel. Ebony ramrods, one of which is a period replacement. Good condition with old coat of heavy yellowed varnish overall. One front sight is missing, the other has been recently filed away, the brass spacer still remains. Gold barrel key escutcheons are slightly dented and bent. Locks are crisp, all markings very good. Stocks retain a coat of varnish and have a few scattered storage marks. A very attractive pair of gold mounted English pistols.
