Very Fine Pair of English Turn-Off Barrel Flintlock Pistols by Delaney (AH6307)
Manufactured by Delaney of London. Barrels are 5" to the barrel/ frame extension and measure 6" to the breech of the frame extension. Barrels have canon muzzles. The frames are engraved as is the trigger guard bow. The actions work perfectly. The stocks are beautifully silver wire inlayed with no wire protruding out of the stock. The silver wire begins at the breech plug tang and opens in the form of a fan. The inlays continue with a beautiful panoply of arms to include trumpets, drums canons and swirling flourishes. The butt caps are grotesques masks in high relief. This is a really fine and well decorated pair of English flintlock pistols of the Georgian period!
