engraving, l 46.6cm More details

Michel de la Pierre began his career as a soldier in the army of the Dutch Republic. In 1632 he arrived in Maastricht, where he set up business as a gunmaker and merchant. Although De la Pierre supplied the army with large quantities of weapons, he also furnished wealthy patrons with luxury pistols. This pair of pistols is made of walrus tusk instead of the usual elephant ivory.
