engraving, l 49.9cm More details

Jan Knoop of Utrecht was one of the leading late 17th-century Dutch gunmakers. Written on the signboard of his house in Utrecht was ‘De gecroonde franse pistolen’ (‘The Crowned French Pistols’), indicating that he followed the French style. The man in a chariot on the lockplate is a motif that often appears on firearms by Utrecht gunmakers, as does the mask on the barrel.
