AC - Double barrel flintlock pistol with folding bayonet presented by King George III to Sir Henry Clinton, commander of British Forces during the American Revolution. Pistol crafted by Robert Wogdon of London in
A brass-barrelled flintlock pistol with spring-bayonet. Early 19th century. With two-stage swamped barrel fitted with a spring-bayonet above and struck at the breech with two Tower private proof marks, border engraved iron tang also incorporating the bayonet release catch, rounded border engraved lock signed 'Aurin(?)', walnut full stock, engraved brass mounts including spurred pommel, and border engraved silver escutcheon.
A PAIR OF RIGBY PERCUSSION PISTOLS: This pair of pistols boasts .48 caliber bores. But beyond the two shots, this duo can also deploy a set of bayonet blades that normally reside alongside the barrels. We know that these were intended to be carried in the pocket or belt by the fact that the hinged backstrap of each pistol can be raised to reveal recesses for a pair of patched round balls and spare percussion caps.
Beautiful flintlock pistol with ornately carved ivory stock, late 17th century. The barrel and lock, marked signed “Lamotte Ainé St.Etienne", features elaborate engraving work and gold inlays decorated with oriental trophies, a portrait medallion, a warrior in armour and entwined monsters.
