Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Originally this was of course one half of a pair but only this one survives. Henry William Mortimer had a shop at 89 Fleet Street, London from 1780 until 1835 when the business name was changed to H.W. Mortimer and Sons from 1835 to 1855.

H.W. Mortimer bore a Royal Warrant having supplied weapons to the Royal family and was well known for supplying weapons to The Royal Mail Coaches. Probably the best known and one of the most revered gun makers of the period. Sets of Dueling Pistol by this maker command extremely high prices by collectors today.

This dueling pistol has a 12 inch octagonal barrel with gold lines to the breach. The top flat engraved "H.W. Mortimer. London. Gun maker to his Majesty." The barrel even has a gold lined touchhole.

The lock with roller fitted to the frizzen spring in marked "H.W. Mortimer" and has a safety catch

at the rear of the Lock Plate. The walnut buttstock in very finely chequered, the steel mounts are blued and the trigger guard bears fine engraving with a pineapple finial.

Overall length is 18 inches.

Just one half of the original pair and therefore priced reasonably for such a fine gun from one of the most renowned gun makers in English history.
