Cased Pair of Percussion Pistols by Devisime a Paris
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
.50 caliber rifled barrels, 10.25" octagonal barrels, patent breech. Engraved breech and tang both are marked with either a 1 or 2 in gold. Engraved lock and hammer, engraved triggerguard. Carved and fluted ebony stocks.  Cased in an ebony box trimmed and outlined in brass.  Inside is lined in blue velvet and partitioned in French style.  Lid is gold embossed with 36 Bulevart Des Italiens, Devisme, Arquedusier Brevete a. Paris. Case has all of the tools including rosewood handled tools.

Condition:  
Case with all of the accessories.  The inside of case is excellent, the tools are mint.  The only problem is the barrels have a very old European re-brown, which does not distract from the appearance. They retain 100% of that finish. Overall they have a mint and crisp look.
