All early Dutch flintlock pistols are rare and noteworthy and this examples by one of the renowned Penterman brothers of Utrecht is even more so. The flat all brass lockplate is finely engraved, stepped at the tail, and signed Pentermann Utrecht. Note that there were three brother. There are exmaples of each work with different spellings of the last name either Pentermann or Penterman. This is confirmed in the book HEER DER NEUE STOCKEL on pages 934-935 (see images).
The brass mounts have a distinctly English appearance and features a wonderful grotesque mask butt rather than the usual spurred buttcaps characteristic of early 18th century holster pistols.
The ornate trigger guard with shell and acanthus finials, and ramrod pipes are English inspired as well. The long steel barrels have relief carving at breeches, and slightly swamped at the engraved muzzles.
The unique brass sideplates are in the Berain style engraved with a vines and laurels. The straight grain walnut fullstock are carved in multiple ares including behind the barrel tang.
Overall Length: 22.5"
Barrel Length: 13.25"
The Penterman brothers, Barend and Gerrit (Gerard) were two of Holland’s most distinguished gunmakers during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Their works are eagerly collected both in Europe and America. A magnificent pair of flintlock pistols, among the finest pistols ever created, by Gerrit Penterman, for Johan Friso, Prince of Orange, is on display at the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore, Maryland.
