Original British Pair of Brass Barreled Coaching Inn Flintlock Pistols by Ketland & Co. - Circa 1810
Original Items: One of a kind Pair. We found these in the most beautiful Antique Fine Art Shop, I think, in the entire United States. Right on the Main Street of Chatham, Massachussets. Made by the firm of English Gun Maker WILLIAM KETLAND, who worked from 1740-1804. The firm continued later as Ketland & Co until 1831 when they closed.
These are standard Walnut stocked, brass barreled with brass mounts, flintlock pistols each marked KETLAND & CO. on the lock plates and LONDON on the barrels. Each barrel has the correct English proof marks on the left-hand side.
Both come with their original wooden ramrod and they are numbered No.1 and No.2, respectively, on their tiny brass oval side plates. Each pistol bears the name of the Coach Inn that they belonged to:- WHYTE HART, BLETCHINGLEY which is in the County of Surrey directly south of London. The oval brass escutcheons are engraved :- Wm. F. presumably the name of the Landlord/Owner at that time.
In just lovely Condition, fully cleaned ready to be displayed.
