    ~ Circa 1820 Double Barrelled Flintlock Pocket Pistol By Spencer ~


    Here we have an absolutely beautiful pocket pistol made by Spencer of London.

    The gunsmith, a Thomas Spencer, was working out of Mile End in London from 1819 and then moved to Southwark in 1841, by 1841 he would have largely moved on to percussion cap firearms so it would appear this was made at his earlier premises in London. He seems to have made a good trade of not just military pistols but some beautiful pocket pistols.

    This pocket pistol is incredible and innovative in its manufacture and finish. It features many features that we’re just starting to become common on firearms at the time. Firstly there is a safety catch, with the safety clip engaged the hammer cannot be brought to full cock. There is also a very interesting fire selector allowing first the upper barrel and later the lower to be fired, also presumably this would allow both barrels to be fires simultaneously.

    The barrels are screw off and the ends have been rifled for approximately a centimetre.

    The pistol is beautifully engraved with what appears to be flags, globes and shields along with ‘Spencer’ and ‘London’.

    The proof marks under the barrels are the 1813 to 1855 Birmingham proof marks.

    The barrels are numbered ‘6’ and ‘7’ and correspond to numbers on the barrel.

    The pistols firing mechanism is in good condition.

    The wooden grip is made of a dark hardwood.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The pistol is 7 inches (18 cm) long.

    The barrels are 2.25 inches (5.5 cm) long.

    The pistol weighs 395 g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The pistol is in an excellent condition for its age.

    There is a slight bit of cosmetic damage to the wood where it meets the metalwork.

    There are some very small spots of blackening on the metalwork.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can inspected in our shop.
