Pair of Flintlock Pistols

Gunsmith Leonardus Graeff Aachen

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 375

Although Dutch in overall style, these pistols are unusual because they were made in Aachen rather than Maastricht and because the helmets on the pistol butts are separately made in gilt silver rather than carved in ivory.
