C1720-1745 Brace Of English Henry Delany London 16 Bore Flintlock Pistols Nipple & Drum Converted To Percussion With Ornate Silver Wire Decoration & Turn Off Cannon Barrels. Sn 17555:6 - 17555:6

Henry Delany was a London based gunmaker recorded at St. Martin-in-the-Fields C1720 and having workshops at Langley Street (‘Cross the Way’) Long Acre 1722-45. He was a maker of fine sporting guns and silver mounted pistols (see Howard L. Blackmore (1986) Gunmakers Of London, 1350-1850. George Shumway Publisher. USA). This is an excellent matching pair of 16 Bore pistols by Delany. The pistols have 6” screw off cannon barrels (14” overall). Their bores have staining and residue consistent with age and use. The pistols, both originally flintlock were made C1720-1745 and have been contemporarily nipple and drum converted to percussion C1830. The underside of each action have crisp English black powder proofs and are signed H. Delany London. Their Walnut stocks are ornately inlaid with scrolling silver wire. The heavy silver butt caps bear flower devices. The back of each wrist is mounted with silver panels each bearing a lightly engraved rampant Lion. Their actions are nice and strong. The price for this ornate, attractive brace of pistols includes UK delivery. NB As antique percussion pistols no licence is required to own them in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 17555:6
