Pr. Kuchenreuter F/L Pistols
Pr. Kuchenreuter F/L Pistols

​This pair of ​signed ​Johann Jacob Kuchenreuter  ​pistols are absolutely magnificent .  They are numbered 1 & 2 on their breech area's. I've kept the photo's in order starting with number 1 so you  can see what photo belongs to which pistol.  Both pistols exhibit almost all of their original finish. The 12"  barrels still have most of their original Brown finish with Johann Jacob Kuchenreuter  inlayed in silver. All the furniture is gold gilded (including the flash pans & touch holes) and the screws are blued.  ​The Kuchenreuter family of gunmakers was started in 1640 Germany and were famous over the century's for their fine work.  Johann Jacob Kuchenreuter ​is considered by many to be the best.  He lived from 1709-1783. He is known to have made firearms for Bavarian Kings, Princes of Thurn & Taxis, Frederick the Great, Prince Metternich, Emperor Napoleon 1, the Russian Tzars and the Austrian Emperors.  Best of the Best!
