Original 17th Century French Flintlock Holster Pistol by Jean DuBois of Sedan - c.1633-1670

Item Description

Original item. Only One Available. Gun maker JEAN DUBOIS worked in SEDAN in Northern France from 1633 to 1670. This pistol dates from the 1660's judging by the shape of the Butt Cap. The Lock is engraved with decorative scroll work including a very faint Maker's signature, but it is unmistakably that of Jean Dubois. The Flintlock hammer is most distinctive to this maker and an almost identical one is featured in THE FLINTLOCK by TORSTEN LENK, page 28, published 1965, and he is listed in STOCKEL VOLUME ONE Page 310 as working for those dates.

The mounts are all of plain iron, and although this was not a High-Art Pistol of that time, it was clearly the possession of some Aristocratic household.
Measuring 18 1/2" overall with an 11" barrel the pistol comes complete with it's ramrod.

An early French Pistol from the time of KING LOUIS 14TH. Cleaned and ready to display!
