Some of the most beautiful work of this craftsman, and many others, are in this book “Liège Gunmakers through their Work. 1800 - 1950”.

Fabry Lambert

It is a pistol from Liège called "à l'écossaise". It's two shots to center-fire. The two barrels (smooth? riffled?) are juxtaposed (calibre not indicated?) These two barrels are tilted forward by operating the Lefaucheux key placed underneath. These barrels are equipped with an extractor. A tongue lock is placed behind the hammers. The finger rest trigger guard protects the two curved triggers. The cap is metallic and balustered. The stock is made of ebony or false-ebony smooth.

The punches on this weapon are heavily erased and difficult to identify. I nevertheless recognize a punch from Liège as:

EL in English letters: provisional test, in use from 1852 to the present day.

The weapon also bears the following markings:

LE or LF? : It is probably a brand name of a manufacturer from Liège with an uncertain reading.

The Who is Who of the Armory of Liège gives nothing for L. E. and for L. F. it gives Fabry Lambert place Licour, 628 in Herstal, which deposits 4 patents of invention from 1888 to 1895.

No certainty though!

FG: brand of an unidentified subcontractor?

5293: serial number.
