Very beautiful box containing two single shot pistols with percussion.

The sticks are of type rebirth (Napoleon III), the caps are with balusters.

The barrels are nicely dug.

Locks “ahead” are engraved of foliage.

The manufacturer CHAUMONT M.J resided in LIEGE passage LEMONNIER, n° 5.

From 1847 to 1863, it deposits three patents relating to the weapons.
