High quality smoothbore percussion pistols with hammer block lock safeties, floral engraved locks, hammers and triggerguards. Butt caps engraved with floral patterns and v. Einem. Barrels marked F. IUNG u SOHNE in SUHL in silver. Pistols includes horn tipped wood ramrods with wipers and ball pullers at the end. A lovely pair of mid-19th century Prussian pistols. F.

Fine. Both retain most of the browned finish on the barrels and some vivid color on the locks and hammers. Markings clear, although the silver barrel mark on one gun is weak due to light cleaning. All other markings and engraving remain crisp. Mechanically functional, very good smooth bores with scattered with pitting and moderate oxidation. Stocks with light handling marks, otherwise crisp.
