officer's + target pistols, circa 1820

an exceptional pair of flintlock pistols, caliber 55 rifled. The flat part of the part round, part octagonal browned barrel shows in silver letters the maker's name. Better than average, the pistols have set-triggers for use as target pistols. As fashionable at the time the lock kept in the white, while butt-plate, trigger guard and other metal parts are brass. Fully shafted, checkered grip with flared butt. 
A very rare pair in good working order and in fine condition.    $5,000.
