    About this item

    Featuring tapering 4 ½" brass barrels of approximately .50 caliber; the breeches finely
    engraved with acanthus and classical border.  Brass pans and rounded lockplates, one
    marked “WILSON” and the other “LONDON” with engraved acanthus behind the steel
    swan-neck cocks.  While Stockel lists numerous Wilsons, this is probably William Wilson,
    London, 1756-1810.  Figured walnut stocks with relief carving at the lockplate, tang and
    wrist.  Sterling silver mounts including side plate, trigger guard, ramrod thimbles, and butt
    cap; each decorated in relief in classical style.  Butt caps with silver hallmarks.  Original
    wood ramrods (one shortened) with turned steel tips.  Mainsprings are strong, but one pistol
    doesn’t release the cock properly.  Overall length 9".   Very attractive matched pair.
