Wertz Pierre

WERTZ Pierre (Proof house of Liege 1913/1914) manufacturer of weapons to CHEFNEUX-BARCHON (Liège)

With deposited 7 patents of 1902 to 1910.


This weapon carries marking “PW breveté (patented)” and “J.B. Rongé Fils”, it’s thus a weapon invented by Pierre Wertz (see patent below) and manufactured and (or) sold by Rongé.

The practice consisting in putting its name on a weapon manufactured by another being common at the time, it is difficult to be more precise!!
