PEYRON FRERES A TOURS, (Der Neue StÝckel): "Indre-et-Loire 1845 - 1855".
In a rare two pairís case. The bigger pair with the maker's marking is in the style of the French 1840's officer's pistols with 48 hair groves rifling, and the butt cap can be pushed open. The pistols are half-stocked with checkered grips.
The smaller pair of pocket pistols is not marked, with hair-groves in caliber .50. Because the different calibers the case contains two bullet-molds. The one for the pocket size has one handle built as a wrench to unscrew the barrels for loading.
The French fit case complete with accessories is very uncommon.
