This handsome set of flintlock pistols represents the bygone tradition of the gentlemen’s duel. Dueling was a privilege afforded to the upper class, and these pistols, remarkable in both artistry and construction, reflect this social standing. Each pistol features intricate chased gold on the locks, mounts and pommel cap. Positioned in their original wooden fitted oak case, lined in a hunter green felt, these pistols are of exceptional quality and condition.

Around the time these guns were made, duels were common practice in Europe and America as a way for gentlemen to protect their honor. The ritual begins when one man insults another, and the offended challenges the offender to a duel. If the offender accepts, he then chooses the weapon — sword or pistol.
