Domenico Bonomino is recorded in Stockel as working in Brescia, circa 1635-1700. Both barrels signed "DOMINICO BONOMINO" with small sets of three triangles on each end and between names. Barrels are well crafted two stage barrels with first stage being octagonal and second stage being hexadecagonal (16), with dual wedding rings at girdle. Roman style miquelet locks with smooth pan face and external mainspring with no half cock, tasteful sparse floral engraving. Root walnut stock with attractive form and equipped with brass furniture engraved with florals and geometric patterns. Wrist with inlaid and pinned armorial crest, vacant. Ramrods, likely the originals, with jag on one tail, are retained by a single faceted and turned ferrule feeding into a reinforced mouth with same faceted and turned ferrule and floral finial. Sideplates decorated en suite. CONDITION: Very good, with metal gently cleaned in the European fashion, leaving some minor darkness and softening Domenico's legend. Stocks are good with some handling marks throughout and some dings and bruises. One minor old break on pistol (B) behind ramrod ferrule, and an extremely well executed spliced repair towards nose. Locks function as they should, bores are very good. This is a a lovely pair of Brescian pistols. EW
