A pair of outstanding percussion single shot pistols by a well respected London maker. 65 caliber, overall length is 13 1/2" full octagon barrel is 8 1/4 " inscribed "Blanch London" on top flat and has attached pivot ram rod. Side lock plate is moderately scroll engraved with "Blanch" inscribed below the blow plug. The trigger guard is also engraved and with a forward pineapple escutcheon and long pistol grip tang. Cased in what seems to be a case with replaced lining but with some original accessories such as the powder horn, nipple turn tool with extra nipples, wad cutter, ebony cleaning rod, brass cap dispenser and can of original Eley caps. All in all a nice package with both pistols having very crisp and strong actions and condition.
