This is a so called Muff pistol set, also called travelling pistol or " reise pistole"
Muffs are handwarmers mostly used on coaches.
Cocking it makes the trigger comes out of the pistol and makes it ready to shoot.
Its hidden while carried, so that drawing is easy and you will not have the trigger stick to anything.
The barrels still got their Original brown finish, this is the deLuxe version with gold inlay.
Its all over hand engraved, and has beautiful ebony grips.
Mostly made between 1775-1850, this one can be dated +/- 1810-40
It is most likely a .44 caliber set (they usually are between .42--->.45)
The set has a silver powderhorn and the cap is used for the right amount of powder.
The tool is made for unscrewing the barrel when it needs maintance and for oushing the bullit in the barrel and for making new bullits.
Complete sets like this one are hard to find and needles to say also expensive.
Unfortunate most sets are not signed so i dont know which maker produced it, although this lid on the inside still bears the ghost of the makers logo, i think its a Crown with on the left a G
Its most likely a Belgium crown, but similar set are also made in French, but then the crown would not be there as they were a republic at that time already.
I cant figger out the proofing marks on the barrel & chamber, but one looks like the preliminar proofing of Belgium.
Please if anyone can contribute or add info regarding this set, be my gues
Enjoy the pics.
