These beautiful flintlock pistols will make a wonderful addition to any collection of antique arms and armour. They were crafted in c.1740 by the famous French armourer, Jalabert-Lamotte. Lamotte came from a family of metalworkers, who were often commissioned by French royalty to make fine pieces of weaponry and armour. Many Lamotte pistols are now on display in the Musée d'Art et d'Industrie at St. Etienne, France.

The pistols feature wooden stocks and steel barrels, with ivory-tipped ramrods. Their stocks are finely decorated with silver mounts, taking the form of scrolled foliage. Their silver butt caps feature relief depictions of Minerva (Athena), the goddess of war and strategy, as well as trophy motifs. The triggers and their guards are silver, and the guards are ornamented with stylised vegetal forms, seashells, and cartouches. The silver hammers are cast as sea monsters, with upward-flicking tails. ‘CN TORDU’ is signed in gilt onto the brown steel barrels, with gilt foliate and banded decoration. The silver lockplates are signed ‘Jalabert Lamotte à St Etienne'.
