Pedersoli L946 AN XIII Commemorative Flintlock Pistol 17.5mm

 

Pedersoli L946 AN XIII Commemorative Flintlock Pistol 17.5mm. Special version of the Napoleonic cavalry pistol AN XIII Model (2005). With this second commemorative production we wanted to remember the ceremony crowning of Napoleon as King of Italy, on the 26th of May 1805 in Milan’s Dome.

During the ceremony the king referring to the iron crown he was placing on his head, said the famous sentence “God gave it to me, woe be to those who would touch it”.

The crowning and the new Reign represented the final act of historic events starting with the first Italian Campaign, during which Napoleon re-organizing the conquered territories in 1796 and in the drive against Austria, instituted the Transpadania Republic and the Cispadania Republic that were united in the Cisalpine Republic the year after. At the beginning of 1802 the Cisalpine Republic became the Italian Republic.

The gun is presented in a handsome wood case with glass lid, which has an inside velveteen lining of Italian green colour. On the lock there is engraved the writing “Manifattura Reale di Brescia” (Royal Brescia Manufacture) a very important reference to remember from the past which like today shows the antique gunsmithing tradition of Brescia.

On the left side of the grip a medal with the Iron Crown Order, instituted the 5th of June 1805 with the promulgation of the third Constitutional Statute( VIII Title, articles 59,60,63,64 and 65) and the same medal symbol is on the case glass lid and around the sentence pronounced by Napoleon.

Each series is supplied with the authenticity certificate and a small ceramic oval picture of the young Napoleon.
