Thuraine and Le Hollandois pistols
Hello everyone. I am researching pistols signed by both Thuraine and Le Hollandois, very few of which seem to survive. Did the Royal Cabinet d'Armes of Louis XIII contain a pair, I wonder? If anyone one this forum has access to the 1729 inventory I would be very grateful if they could do a quick check to investigate the possibility and let me know.
Many thanks,

Thanks, Corrado. I had in fact just found this pistol on a website posted by Kunst-Waffenkammer, a dealer in Heilbronn. I also know of the pair sold from the Hanover Royal Collection, and a pair in very poor condition sold in Shrewsbury, England a few years ago. But information about any other pistols, signed by both makers
will be gratefully received.
Best wishes,
