Item Description

Original Items. One of a kind pair. This wonderful set of Italian Long flintlock pistols is really compelling, with beautifully carved wood stocks with carved embellishments. The 12 1/2" Damascus barrels are decorated in heavy GOLD and the iron is carved which is also found on the hammer. The lock plates of both are signed on the bottom:-


This is the name of a gunsmithing family who worked in Gardone Val Trompia in Italy, from as early as 1580 up until 1780 through many generations. The pistols measure almost 20" in overall length and are long and slim. The silver mounts are exceptional being heavy, substantial and beautifully embossed all over.

These pistols are fitted with under the barrel ram rods of almost 12" in length that are topped with very attractive green glass tips. The barrels gold accents are particularly nice and these pistols present very attractively.
