In the late 18th century, Charing Cross in London was a hub of gunsmithing activity. This included John Prosser, Thomas Gill, and John Knubley. In 1790 Knubley was awarded the title of Gunmaker to the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Clarence and Prince Edward. Knubley moved his business to 7 Charing Cross in 1792. Knubley passed away in February 1795, but his wife continued the business along with Samuel Brunn until 1779 who operated as Knubley, Brunn & Co, Charing Cross, London. Brunn passed the business along to John Mallet who continued to operate at Charing Cross until 1803. This is an excellent pair of percussion pistols by Knubley made in the late 18th century & converted to nipple & drum percussion sometime in the early 19th Century. The pistols have all original walnut full stocks with facetted grip & flat butts. Both are inset with void German silver escutcheons. They have 9” steel barrels with flat tops and open sights (15 ½” overall). They have foliate decorated trigger guards with extended tangs and pineapple finials, belt bars & Dolphin hammers. The action plates of each pistol are crisply signed by the manufacturer ‘Knubley’. The top of each barrel are very faintly signed ‘London’ (to faint to photograph). Reputably the underside of the barrels have traces of London proofs and are stamped ‘Stubbs’, most likely the gunsmith who performed the conversion from flintlock to percussion (to avoid possible damage we have not removed the barrels to look for these marks). Both pistols are complete with their original wood ram rods with steel worms and horn end caps. The barrels of each pistol are smoothbore. The bores have staining & residue consistent with age. Their cocking & firing actions work as they should. The pistols are complete with their fitted wood case. The case with hinged lid has its original lock (key present, turns in lock but does not lock). The interior of the case is lined in felt and has compartments contoured to snugly fit the pistols and their accessories which include a copper and brass powder flask which has an internal tube with hinged brass covers to hold moulded balls, a steel bullet mould, a wooden pot with removable lid that contains a spare nipple, 4 moulded lead balls in a white drawstring bag and a wood cleaning rod with brass jag. The price for this pair of cased pistols includes UK delivery. NB as antique percussion weapons no licence is required to own these pistols in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display.
