Cased Pair of English Turn-Over Percussion Pistols by Durs Egg, circa 1830
A very fine pair of 9mm smooth-bore turn-over pistols, case hardened scroll engraved frames, case hardened barrels with London proof marks, blued drop down triggers, finely checkered walnut bag shaped butts with vacant oval silver escutcheons, in their original red velvet lined brass bound mahogany case with key and trade label, containing nipple wrench, turn-screw, copper flask, and case hardened combination mold and barrel turn-off wrench. These pistols are in pristine unfired condition. The Durs Egg trade label is as illustrated on plate 118 page 43 of "British Gunmakers their Trade Cards, Cases & Equipment” by W. Keith Neal and D. H. L. Back.
