Monsieur, you have insulted me for the last time. Pistols and croissants at dawn1 bitch.
– mark twain
From Lawrence J Zinzi Antiques:
French dueling pistols from the early 19th century in their original display case. These percussion pistols are in superb condition and are offered in their fitted walnut box, equipped with all necessary components, making them operational. The matching pistols have octagonal barrels with hand carved designs. These barrels rest within a walnut stock accented by a lock plate, cock, butt cap & trigger guard all featuring the design of swirling leaf plumes.
The lock plate is signed: Lepage 12 Rue D’Enghien & the interior of the box cover reads:Lepage Freres Rue D’Enghien A Paris
