These pistols are excellent examples of the work of James Wilkinson, Gunmaker of King George III, and founder of one of England's most famous gun and sword makers which are still in business to this day as Wilkinson Sword.

Further features include beautiful French style cocks, line engraved roller frizzens, rainproof pans, platinum lined touch holes and gilt barrel key escutcheons. The top of each barrel is signed "Jas. Wilkinson, LONDON." Overall length of each pistol is 11". CONDITION: The lock of one of the pistols retains some original case colors.
