Pair of Wheellock Pistols

Italian, Brescia

Not on view

Brescian firearms are renowned for the quality and beauty of their chiseled ornament, the elegance of their line, and the excellence of their barrels. This pair of wheellock pistols is exceptional for having nearly the exact same measurements – usually there are minor differences between a pair – and nearly exactly the same weights.
