1825 Italian Percussion
Replica Dueling Pistol Pair
Famous duelers include the Duke of Wellington while he was Prime Minister of England. The United States' President Andrew Jackson--a hot-tempered individual with a marriage to a divorced woman that scandalized the nation--fought at least a dozen duels. Perhaps the most famous American duel was between sitting Vice President Aaron Burr and Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton.
The originals on which this pair of 1825 Italian percussion non-firing replica dueling pistols are based were manufactured in Brescia, an Italian gun manufacturing center renowned for elegant, beautifully decorated dueling pistols. These handsome replicas are an impressive 15 inches long, with wood stocks and ornately engraved barrels, locks, lockplates and buttplates, grey finish. The 2-pistol set comes packed in a wood-grain cardboard box with a vintage engraving of a dueling scene.
