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

Dozin B.

This is a pistol called “dining room”.

The barrel is equipped with a notch and a front sight that can be adjusted in length and width. The calibre is 6 mm flobert.

The pedal extractor is manual.

The walnut wood is finely grided.

The weapon bears the punches of the Liège proofhouse, namely:

ELG * in a vertical oval: definitive acceptance, in use from 1846 to 1893.

K*: Controller’s countermark, in use from 1877 to 1968.

The gun bears the manufacturer’s mark, Dozin B. He was an armourer in Liège during the 19th century. Unfortunately, he is not otherwise identified. He produced the same type of weapons as Dozin Mathieu, rue de Visé, 100 in Wandre (Liège), who had 8 patents filed between 1897 and 1906. Maybe they were parents, that remains to be proven?

33 must be the serial number.

LD crowned: unfortunately unknown brand.
