W. Parker, gunmakers to his Royal Majesty King William IV, crafted this impressive pair of dueling percussion pistols. These exceptional pistols are fashioned with the utmost attention to detail and are covered in exquisite decoration from hilt to barrel. Each pistol features intricate silver engraving on the locks and mounts and precise carving on the richly patterned walnut stocks. Positioned in their original fitted case bearing the firm’s original trade label, along with all of their original accessories, these pistols are of exceptional quality and condition. Accouterments housed in the case include a cleaning rod, powder flask, bullet mold and bullets. The lock plate is fitted with a sliding safety catch, and it is engraved with “W. Parker,” while the barrel is engraved “W. Parker - Holborn - London.”

The firm was founded in 1791 when William Parker went into partnership with gunmaker John Field’s widow, and they traded as Field & Parker. Parker was eventually awarded the Royal Warrant and became gunmaker to Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn (the future Queen Victoria's father), then to King William IV.
